Shoes that are too narrow can cause other problems. Shoes that are too soft or have too little support can contribute to the formation of plantar fasciitis.

I was told I had a fracture, which in turn caused scar tissue on the bottom of my foot. My dr. suggested an MRI. What happens next?

can it also be caused by poor genes leading to flat pronated fett that wear out over the yrs
