The most likely cause is plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is when the fascia that runs along the bottom of your foot becomes inflamed. This piece of tissue is meant to support the arch and foot. However, when it becomes stretched, small tears may occur. These tears can cause recurring pain that you just can’t seem to shake. Yet, the pain is likely worse first thing in the morning.
What causes plantar fasciitis?
You are more likely to have pain in the foot or feet upon waking in the morning due to poor footwear, flat feet, a tight achilles tendon muscle, or from improper gait mechanics.
What can you do to find relief from your foot or feet pain?
By massaging the calf muscles, including the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, your pain may significantly be reduced. Click the ‘book appointment’ button below to book an appointment with one of our qualified massage therapists today.
