Get Rid of Plantar Fascia/ Fasciitis Naturally

One of the most common causes of foot pain, plantar fascia or plantar fasciitis is most pronounced in the morning and gives a sensation of pain and inflammation. It will lessen throughout the day as you’re on your feet, but the moment you’re off them again and your muscles begin to relax you’re sure to start feeling it again. It is caused by irritation to the plantar fascia, a ligament that wraps from the heel to the toes and is most common in the middle-aged, the elderly, and the overweight or those who are on their feet often.
