Plantar aponeurosis is the ligament that attaches the heel bone to the toe bases. It maintains the arch of the foot and many intrinsic muscles originate from that fascia. When it gets inflamed generally at the hell insertion the condition is called as plantar fascitis.

The first line of management is --

cushioned soft heel

soft heeled sleepers

avoid walking on hard surfaces

antiinflammatory agents

foot intrinsic muscle strengthening exercises

if this fails

local steroid injections

if this fails

repeat steroid injection

if this fails

surgery - plantar fascia release.
