Plantar fasciitis is caused by an inflammation of the plantar fascia, the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot. This condition is likely to come back if it wasn't treated effectively and the underlying causes of the condition still exist.

For some people, plantar fasciitis is a one-time event. For example, if you wore a pair of running shoes that were worn out, you may only have one bout of the condition. However, if you encountered the same situation but had flat feet a reoccurence is more likely if this factor wasn't fully treated. 

Treating all factors that contribute to plantar fasciitis is the key to successful and long term relief of this condition.
