Podiatry 36 years experience
Protocol...: Mainly, the need for support. I'd say 98% of my plantar fascitis patients respond to non-surgical treatments... Rest, supportive insoles, rx orthotics, otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve), prescription nsaid's, steroid injections, prp injections, physical therapy, etc... If all else fails... Surgery.

See a podiatrist: Ice, stretching, support, anti-inflammatory medication.
Dr. Marc Foucher
Podiatry 29 years experience
Arch supports.: Avoid flat shoes or walking without shoes. About 50% of all cases of plantar fascitis can be cured with proper footwear. This is based on my 20 years treating the condition.
