Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes — and it can be quite painful. Most commonly, pain is concentrated in the heel, but according to Alan Bass, DPM, a board-certified podiatrist based in New Jersey and spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association, it can be felt in other areas of the body as well.

“Tons of patients who suffer from plantar fasciitis disrupt their normal gait to avoid putting pressure on the bottom of the heel,” Dr. Bass said. “This compensation can lead to pain in the ankle, hips, and even knees.” Bass also says people with flat feet or high arches may be most susceptible to plantar fasciitis due to increased pulling of the band along the bottom of the foot.
