Fasciitis

Fascia is very fine connective tissue sheeting, enclosing muscles and other organs, connecting structures within the body and facilitating movement.

When fascia becomes inflamed the condition is known as fasciitis. Two common regions of the lower limb that develop fasciitis are the strong fascial layer on the outer side of the thigh called the iliotibial band (also called the iliotibial tract), and the plantar fascia of the sole of the foot.
