The definition of PLANTAR FASCIITIS: Plantar Fasciitis is caused by aseptic inflammation of the tendons or Fascia in the soles of the feet.
It is pain and discomfort in the heel that the most common symptom of Plantar Fasciitis, which is usually near the sole of the foot. Sometimes the tenderness is intense and persistent. Pain is evident when you wake up in the morning, aggravated when you walk too much and can be severe even when you stand and rest. Plantar fasciitis is a chronic injury caused by exercise, and overtraining can lead to calcaneal pain, sometimes radiating to the front of the foot, a disease that affects adults of all ages.
I’m going to talk to you about aseptic inflammation. Do not think that inflammation is necessarily caused by trauma bacterial infection, when the body’s internal soft tissue tension disorders, resulting in abnormal bone and muscle friction and traction, there will be inflammation. This inflammation, caused by an imbalance between the internal soft tissue and the bone, is aseptic.
So what soft tissue and bone joint disorders are responsible for this aseptic inflammation of the Plantar Fasciitis? First of all, Plantar Fascia is an exact term. It is located on the soles of our feet, extending from the heel to the toes. Its tissue is very strong, it is also one of the main forces that maintain the arch of the foot.
Our PLANTAR FASCIA is the end of a posterior backline that goes all the way up to the Galea aponeurosis, passing through the Achilles Tendon, Gastrocnemius, hamstring, sacral tubercle ligaments, lumbosacral Fascia, erector Ridge, and finally to the starting point, the CAP aponeurosis.
When the tissues of the PLANTAR FASCIA begin to lose their ability to withstand the long term strain that often Plantar fasciitis us, plus we can hardly avoid using our feet for a range of everyday activities, pain erupted in the Plantar Fascia.
So where does the tension on our Plantar Fascia come from?
Let’s look back at the symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis:
Pain is evident when you wake up in the morning
2. Increased pain during excessive walking
3. Severe patients may feel pain even when they are resting on their feet.
What all three of these things have in common is that some of the muscles in our rear chain have been shrinking.
If you understand what I mean by a chain of muscles that runs along the back surface of the body, it’s easy to understand that when one part of the chain shortens, it pulls on the other.
For example, when we wake up in the morning with pain in the soles of our feet, we simply think, we certainly do not sleep with the back of our feet, usually with the soles of our feet stretched out to sleep. This is called Plantar flexion, and it’s one of the functions of the calf muscles. When we keep our feet flexed while we sleep, our gastrocnemius muscles shorten, causing our plantar Fascia to sustain traction throughout the night.
In the same way, when we walk, our gastrocnemius muscle is constantly straining. When we overdo it, the tension in the gastrocnemius muscle becomes so high that it pulls on the Plantar Fascia. When a person’s Plantar Fascia is in a constant state of tension, he or she may feel plantar pain after standing too long.
After understanding the principles of Plantar Fasciitis, I will give you solutions and improvements in the next article.
