Anatomy

Plantar fascia is the thick fibrous band of connective tissue originating on the bottom surface of the heel bone and extending along the sole, or bottom surface of the foot, toward the toes. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot.

Plantar Fasciitis with Heel Spurs

A heel spur is a pointed, bony outgrowth that forms on the heel bone. It protrudes from the bottom of the foot at the point where the plantar fascia is attached to the heel bone.

Heel spurs tend to occur in patients who have had plantar fasciitis for a prolonged period of time. About 70% of patients with plantar fasciitis have a heel spur, but many patients have a heel spur without symptoms of pain.

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia, the thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot, is overstretched or overused. Inflammation of the tissue can be painful and make walking difficult. The cause of longstanding cases of plantar fasciitis may not be inflammation, but a chronic degeneration of the tendon resulting from an accumulation over time of microscopic tears at the cellular level.

Other risk factors for plantar fasciitis include:

  • Shoes with poor arch support or soft soles
  • Foot arch problems (both flat feet and high arches)
  • Obesity or sudden weight gain
  • Long-distance runner, especially running downhill or on uneven surfaces
  • Tight Achilles tendon (the tendon connecting the calf muscles to the heel)
