Time and stretching : Plantar fasciitis can be a very frustrating condition to deal with. My patients have had different levels of success with differing modalities. Daily stretching of the fascia sometimes helps, other patients are relieved by shoe soles high arches, there are also devices what will stretch your plantar fascia while you sleep.

ice the area several times a day . Make sure shoes are not worn and have adequate padding and support.
