Why do I have knee pain?

Many people suffering from plantar fasciitis will “favor” the painful foot altering the gait (the manner in which you walk or run) By 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, thereby causing stress and strain. I have seen people experience side effects from heel pain that effects the hips, back and even shoulders.
