Nothing can disrupt normal daily living quite as much as pain that keeps you from moving around.

If you’re experiencing pain in the bottom of your heel, it may be worth getting checked out. Your plantar fascia ligament may be inflamed, which could be causing your pain.

Depending on the cause and the extent of the inflammation, you may find relief with a nonsurgical treatment, but in severe cases, you could consider a surgical procedure.

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis causes pain in the bottom of the heel. The plantar fascia is a thick, weblike ligament that connects your heel to the front of your foot. It acts as a shock absorber and supports the arch of your foot, helping you walk.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common orthopedic complaints. Your plantar fascia ligaments experience a lot of wear and tear in your daily life. Too much pressure on your feet can damage or tear the ligaments. The plantar fascia becomes inflamed, and the inflammation causes heel pain and stiffness.

Fortunately, stretches and foot massage that you can do at home may help relieve pain and prevent the condition from becoming chronic. Here are some tips for self-massage with spiky massage ball you can try at home.
