“Plantar fasciitis seems to have recently reached epidemic proportions,” says Doug Tumen, DPM, a board-certified podiatrist and author of Ask the Foot Doctor. “Because the average person takes at least 5000-7000 steps per day, and because we live in a world of concrete and hard surfaces, our feet are continually taking a significant impact and load on a daily basis.”

While there is no one cause of plantar fasciitis, we do know that some things can exacerbate it. Tumen says that repetitive stress, weight gain, improper shoes, exercise, and sporting activities (especially repetitive motions or new activity), along with natural tightening of our muscles and tendons over time, can all contribute to developing plantar fasciitis.
