Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

The people most likely to get plantar fasciitis are those who:
* are on their feet a lot (athletes, soldiers, store clerks)
* have high arches
* have excessive pronation (the feet roll inward when you walk)
* stand or run on hard surfaces for long periods of time (triathletes, chefs, store clerks)
* are overweight
* wear shoes that do not fit well or are worn out
* have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles (the most common cause)
