The first steps in the morning or standing/walking/running are often the most painful
There are many causes for foot and heel pain/plantar fasciitis including poor footwear, foot posture/”collapsed arches”, or recent increased running/exercise.
Symptoms people often describe can range from soreness and stiffness in the morning particularly that first step getting out of bed, feeling of tightness or cramping at night in the calf/legs, or even just unable to stand after sitting or take a step.
It is estimated that more than 3 million people suffer from plantar fasciitis/foot and heel pain.
