Tried NSAIDS for plantar fasciitis pain which offered no relief. Is time and ice the best medicine to treat?
Time & ice: are excellent to use for plantar fasciitis. I also highly recommend stretching at least 3x/day, massaging the area with an anti-inflammatory (natural or prescribed), wearing supportive shoes, not going barefoot when walking, and refraining from aerobics or jogging for around 6 weeks! NSAIDS and local steroid injections can be used, however not always needed. Surgery is not typical. Get better! ...Read more

My treatment: I do not agree with current therapies for plantar fasciitis, especially when chronic. My at home therapy: to help healing, improve circulation with nightly soaking of feet in hot water and wearing heavy socks at night to keep feet warm.
