Start with ice: Achilles' tendon stretches, rolling a frozen water bottle under your arch while sitting, wearing arch supports, if pain persists see a podiatrist.

Combo treatment. : If you have plantar fasciitis, and hurt most with the first few steps in the morning, the more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections.
