Plantar fasciitis: The most common cause of this is inflammation of the thick tendon on the bottom of the foot that attaches right at the heel. It is important to stretch the bottom of your foot out before you get out of bed in the morning and to step down into a supportive shoe. Gel heel cups are beneficial as is physical therapy.
