Dr. Michael Saraydarian, a podiatrist at Central Maine Orthopaedics, says plantar fasciitis is the most common condition he and other general foot and ankle doctors see. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot. When you have fasciitis, it means the band of tissue is irritated or inflamed. Dr. Saraydarian says repetitively overusing and overstretching the fascia and wearing shoes that don’t fit the activity you’re doing are the most common causes.

"Surgery is very, very rare when it comes to plantar fasciitis. Statistics show that less than five percent of people need surgery. Following a treatment plan should include a mix of getting rid of the inflammation, not aggravating it by wearing certain structured shoes or immobilizing the foot, and doing some stretching. Usually, 95 percent of patients are better within weeks.
