Ankle plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the fibrous tissues that connect the heel bones to the toes. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain. A thick web-like ligament connects the heel to the front of the foot. Tension and stress in these ligaments cause ankle plantar fasciitis. Repeated stretching and tearing can swell the fascia, making you feel irritation. Ankle plantar fasciitis may result in stabbing pain in the bottom of the foot surrounding the heel.

The pain can sometimes be worse after exercise. Age, obesity, poor foot mechanics, and certain exercises are common risk factors for ankle plantar fasciitis. If you feel these symptoms, consult your doctor immediately, as ignoring them could lead to chronic pain. Your GP will perform a physical check-up. If further testing is required, he will request an X-ray or MRI. You can treat mild symptoms of ankle plantar fasciitis at home with medicines and therapy. In some severe cases, surgery may require detaching the plantar fascia from the heel bone.

It is estimated that more than 95% of people with plantar fasciitis recover within six months following the treatment. Experts suggest some preventive measures that help prevent plantar fasciitis. If you are overweight or obese, you put more pressure on the bottom of the heel, so losing weight will help avoid ankle plantar fasciitis.

Wearing proper athletic shoes during exercise or a match is best to keep you safe. Stretch your legs, calves, and feet regularly to make them flexible and stable. To provide extra support to your ankle, you can wear ankle supports during sports.

Remember that overuse of ankle supports and improper fitting may cause other damages. Ensure that you wear ankle braces correctly or under the instructions of your GP.
