Antiinflammatories both oral and topical, msm, glucosamine, physical therapy, braces.
Stretching of achilles tendon and plantar fascia for heel and quads and hamstrings for the knee. Accupunture is an option as well.

In brief: Acupuncture

You already received great information from two physicians.
It is important that your physician weigh in on this. Acupuncture is a great option to improve range of motion while reducing pain & inflammation. It breaks down obstructions in flow of blood, lymph, nerves & chi.
