Increase in Burden of Patient Population to Drive Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Market
- Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot pain conditions. Plantar fasciitis is primarily caused due to repetitive strain on the ankle, leading to progressive wear and tear and degeneration of plantar fascia, a thick connective tissue covering the lower side of the foot.
- The obese and geriatric populations are more prone to plantar fasciitis. It leads to sharp pain and other complications, in which, plantar fascia, a tissue connecting the heel and the toe bones becomes less flexible and more constrained.
- Rise in the number of individuals living sedentary lifestyles coupled with changes in eating habits leads to an increase in obesity, which puts pressure on the joints and ankles, and can result in plantar fasciitis.
- Increase in the percentage of geriatric and obese populations is likely to propel the number of patients suffering from plantar fasciitis.
- Moreover, prolonged standing, weight bearing, ill-fitted shoes, incorrect walking posture, and sudden rise in sports activities can trigger micro-tears in the plantar fascia, and lead to plantar fasciitis.
- This multi-factorial etiology of the disease is anticipated to drive the global plantar fasciitis treatment market during the forecast period.
