    Episode At A Glance: This week on The SavvyCast, I share about my journey with plantar fasciitis, from how I first realized I had it to the treatment that has given me relief. If you have been following along with me on Instagram, you know that this year I discovered I had plantar fasciitis.

This inflammation results in a lot of pain, most commonly in the bottom of the foot. In this episode, I share my own experience with plantar fasciitis, from my surgery to what products have been helpful.
