Signs and Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis and Bone Spurs

The pain can be centrally located in the heel or arch it can be worse in the morning and after sitting but improves as the day goes on. The pain with first steps in the morning and after rest is caused by pulling the fascia and plantar muscles off of the heel bone. If you have pain—without weight-bearing—that is shooting in nature, it is caused by the nerve on the side of the heel.
