Whether by medications, rest, or injections, the inflammation is the big issue. If you are used to using nsaids, that can help, but clear with physician. You may need stronger things like steroid injections and rest. Once the inflammation is stopped, stretching, strengthening are key, of both the achilles and the plantar fascia.

In brief: You can do this:

Because tendons have a poor blood supply, healing is going to take longer than you expect.

You must stay off of it as much as possible and do not do anything that will cause the calf to over used. Apply moist heat to the area and under use, not over use. Docs can do more
