Conservative Rx: Generally plantar fasciitis responds in several months to conservative treatments which include resting, icing the painful area and stretching. Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil) sometimes help. Physical therapy, night splints & orthotics also often help. When conservative measures fail to work steroid injections and surgical procedures may be recommended. Best of luck with your health!
