Can Plantar Fasciitis Cause Pain In The Top Of Your Feet & In The Muscles That Run On Inside Of Ankl


Plantar fasciitis can cause pain in the top of the foot but you should be feeling a lot of heel pain as well. Generally in plantar fasciitis your pain is worse in the morning when you wake up if you jab your from in the middle bottom of your heel you should feel pain.

You could have something called extensor tendinitis which is an inflammation of the muscle tendons that run along the top of the foot and attach to the big toe.

You can test to see if you have extensor tendonitis by flexing your foot downwards, and then have someone put pressure on them as you try to pull your toes upward/ If you feel pain upon the top of the foot it's most likely extensor tendonitis.

Treatment options include calf muscle stretching and anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS). For long term treatment and prevention orthotics may be helpful.
