Plantar Fasciitis is characterised by pain in the foot due to inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament.
A lowered medial longitudinal arch creates excessive tensile strain in the fascia causing this inflammation.
In the event of lower-limb-length inequality, compensatory movements to lengthen the short leg and shorten the long leg occur.
Mahmood et al. sought to understand the effect of such a discrepancy on the frequency and severity of unilateral plantar fasciitis.
