Plantar Fasciitis: Conservative treatments of plantar fasciitis consist of stretching and icing, physical therapy, night splints, orthotics and cortisone injections. There are other types of therapy, such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections and therapies to stimulate healing through your own bodies natural processes. If these fail, surgery is an option, but will permanently destabilize your arch.

Multiple: This is likely plantar fasciitis. The more invoked options are using a nighttime orthotic, modalities, injection therapy, or even surgery. Most cases do get better on their own at some point, but it sometimes takes several months.
