The foot is a very complex and intricate part of the body. It is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints and 126 muscles, ligaments and nerves. Most people are not born with foot problems, but develop them because of neglect and improper care due to ill-fitting shoes, poor posture, balance and exercise.
Plantar fasciitis is a common problem. It is an inflammation of the plantar fascia and is most commonly caused by activity that puts stress on the plantar fascia. Join Dominique Nickson, MD, a Medical Center of McKinney orthopedic surgeon that specializes in foot and ankle, to learn how to identify plantar fasciitis, and more about nonsurgical and surgical treatments.
