Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that causes pain in the heel and bottom of the foot. It is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, the band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel to the toes. The pain is usually worst in the morning or after sitting for long periods of time, and can make it difficult to walk or stand for long periods.
