Plantar Fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis is a common heel problem. Pain is worse with the first step in the morning and can get better during the day and then worsen towards the end of the day. Stretching your calve muscles twice a day and massaging the bottom of your feet before you get up in the morning are the best treatment options. Other option include a steroid injection and good shoe inserts (NOT Dr Scholls).
