Some people are more likely to get plantar fasciitis, including men aged 40-70 and people with high arches or flat feet. However, there are some factors you can control that may help prevent you from getting plantar fasciitis, including:
- Avoid running on uneven surfaces.
- Lose weight to take stress off your feet.
- Reduce long distance running if you notice symptoms.
- Stretch your Achilles tendon if it is tight.
- Wear shoes that provide good support.
