Foot : Structure can cause it especially if you heave excessive pronation or are overweight. Strapping it can relieve pain along with custom orthotics and otc nsaids.

Young and healthy: Plantar fasciitis usually affects active, younger people between the ages of 20 and 50, and it's entirely plausible--though unfortunate--for a 19 year old to suffer from it. The good news is that since you're young, you'll likely heal a lot faster than a 50 year old who has it!
