-Rest as much as possible for at least a week.

  • Apply ice to the painful area. Do this at least twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes, more often in the first couple of days.
    -Take acetaminophen for pain or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation.
    -Wear proper-fitting shoes.
  • Night splints can stretch the injured fascia and allow it to heal.

Along with above mentioned tips you can also try some simple exercise such as calf stretches and towel stretches especially first thing in the morning. These can help your ligament become more flexible and strengthen the muscles that support your arch.

Plantar faciatis-icing, stretching, etc. I wore a ‘boot’ splint at night for awhile, which helped. Finally had a foot doctor that gave me a cortizone shot in the heel. That took care of it, along with the splint and stretches.
