Podiatric medicine focuses on diagnosing, treating and preventing foot and ankle problems, such as plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a ligament-like band running from your heel to the ball of your foot. This band pulls on the heel bone, raising the arch of your foot as it pushes off the ground. But if your foot moves incorrectly, the plantar fascia may become strained. The fascia may sweat and its tiny fibers may begin to fray, causing plantar fasclitis.
