In brief: Depends
If you have a small tear in the ligament, then rest will help.
But inflammation of the fascia can be better treated (methods that allow you to continue activity).... See a specialist for options and a diagnosis.

If there is no sign of a tear in the fascial band rest will help but not needed. Orhtotics, icing and injecitons along with physical therapy will help. Seeking medical attention for this condtionis highly recommmend. This problem should not be ignored.

In brief: Yes
Rest is important but stretching is important as well.
The stretching process also allows the fascia and ligaments ti rest and heal without additional stress.
