New Research On Plantar Fasciitis

In the past, research viewed plantar fasciitis as an inflammatory disorder caused by micro-tearing of the plantar fascia. New evidence shows no inflammatory properties seen in histological specimen of patient’s with chronic plantar fasciitis. This leads to the belief that the chronic pain is due to the degenerative condition of the collagen fibers due to excessive wear and tear.
