Plantar fasciitis - Prolonged weightbearing on the foot on a hard surface Factor

The factor requires weightbearing (being on the feet) while on a hard surface for at least 5 hours per day.  There are no associated definitions.  The weightbearing does not require any lifting or carrying of loads, just that the affected foot bears weight (of the body) while on a hard surface.  Such would occur when simply standing on any hard surface such as a concrete floor or bitumen roadway, but would also include any running, exercise or other activity undertaken that was undertaken on a hard surface.

Clinical onset and eligible service [37832]
