Medical Considerations for Plantar Fasciitis
While plantar fasciitis is often a painful and even debilitating condition, it is usually curable and doesn't do any long-term damage; however, severe pain may interfere with your ability to do certain types of work or engage in specific sports or other recreational activities.
Always talk with your doctor if you have soreness, pain, redness, swelling or other indications of problems in any area of your feet that persist for more than a few days.
