Abstract

BACKGROUND

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of pain in the heel area in adults. This condition is an inflammation that occurs due to microtrauma that occurs repeatedly. The pain that appears is usually most felt when you first get up in the morning, or after resting on both legs for a long time. Body mass index (BMI) is one of the factors that can contribute to the onset of plantar fasciitis. However, until now there are still pros and cons of opinions regarding the role of the BMI. This study aims to see the relationship between these two variables with plantar fasciitis.
