One of the major causes of this medical condition is running. Apart from running, plantar fasciitis can also be caused due to factors such as tight calf muscles, aging, abnormalities pertaining to foot structure, flat feet, and genetics. This condition becomes worse if the tissue in the foot develops more tears.
