Understanding 10 key biomechanical functions of the plantar fascia

Underscoring the potential ramifications of plantar fasciotomy procedures and plantar fascia ruptures, this author offers a closer look at 10 biomechanical functions of the plantar fascia, ranging from enhanced resupination of the subtalar joint during propulsion to reduced tension forces within the plantar ligaments, and reduced ground reaction force on metatarsal heads during late midstance and propulsion.
