Pigeon Toes, A Common Cause of Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by

It’s been found that a strangely common occurrence of Pigeon Toes (or In-toeing) may be a leading cause of Plantar Fasciitis.

The Plantar Fascia is a ligament connecting your heel bone to the base of your toes supporting your foot arch.

Two common causes given by your doctor while you sit there in agony is Obesity (your not, you run every day), and sports injury (not likely, I buy way to many new running shoes).

The one thing most doctors won’t notice while you sit there, is that when you walk, one of your feet turns inwards slightly, this causes a repeated over stretching of the Plantar Fascia, eventually resulting in severe and chronic heel pain we know as Plantar Fasciitis.

If you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, please ensure you try focusing on keeping your stride and feet in toe and ensure you have the best running or walking shoes available.
