Plantar fasciitis: The most common cause of this is inflammation of the thick tendon on the bottom of the foot that attaches right at the heel. It is important to stretch the bottom of your foot out before you get out of bed in the morning and to step down into a supportive shoe. Gel heel cups are beneficial as is physical therapy.

Podiatrist: Recommend a trip to your podiatrist to rule out fracture. Rest your foot. For the first 2 days after injury, apply ice for 15 to 20 minutes every few hours. You can wrap your foot & ankle with an ace wrap, ensuring it is not so tight that it decreases your circulation. Elevate your foot above your heart. Can prop on a pillow.
