What causes plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by standing on your feet all day, being overweight, activities such as running, and having flat feet or having high arching feet. The plantar fascia runs from your heel to the ball of your foot and can degenerate, putting it at risk of small tears that then cause pain.
