Plantar fasciitis is the prime reason behind most heel pains. It is caused due to the inflammation of a thick band of tissues which lies at the bottom of the foot and is responsible for connecting the toes with the heel bone. Stabbing pain occurs in plantar fasciitis which generally occurs during the first step in the morning. Although, the stabbing pain normally decreases when the movement of the legs increases. However, the pain might return after rising from a long time of sitting or after a long time of standing. This pain can be seen mostly in runners, overweight or obsessed people and in those who wear shoes without adequate heel support.
