Rest the foot as much as possible, try not to put too much shoe pressure on the sore spot. Applying some ice to the area may help as well as taking some NSAIDS. If things don't improve in a couple of days, see a doctor. ...Read more

Hold all exercises 30 seconds, do 2 sets, 3 times per day. Hope this helps. ...Read more
