Knee Pain caused by Plantar Fasciitis
Many people suffering from plantar fasciitis will develop knee pain shortly after the their first symptoms of heel pain begin. The reason for this is very simple. When our foot is injured we tend to favor it to help reduce the pain. When favoring the injured foot you are actually changing your biomechanics and putting greater stress on other parts of the body. The body is now out of alignment and the knees will receive most of misalignment. This causes stress and strain on your legs. This will usually result in ankle or knee pain.
