what are good exercises that won't take a toll on your feet if you have plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fascitiis: Usually bothers someone on first standing and eases up as they walk. With a good orthotic while tenderness is certainly possible , discomfort may in fact not be present. It will start up again afterwards. Night splints are helpful to keep the fascia stretched while sleeping.

Should be quick: Orthotics are for comfort and should feel better soon after getting them. Orthotics alone will not cure plantar fascitis. Stretching is the key.

Stretch the...: Achilles tendon. The more limber it is, the less the foot has to work. Twice a day for five minutes.
