Plantat fascia is the flat thick band of tissue that connets the heel to the toes. This tissue also provides support to the tissue. Plantat fasciitis is one of the most common cause of heel pain. The pain is due to excessive stress given to this tissue band, which weaken, swolles and irritates. Repeated strain can cause tiny tear in the ligament. High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citationsÂ to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by a Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
