Hi Anon,

I'm so sorry that you're going through the pain from plantar fasciitis. Here are some treatment options:

Avoid running and other activities that may worsen pain.

Apply ice or a cold pack to the heel and arch for 15 to 20 minutes, 4 times a day to relieve pain. Wrap the ice or cold pack in a towel. Do not apply the ice directly to your skin.

Night splint—A special splint that will hold your foot in a neutral position while sleeping.

Orthotics—Special shoe inserts provide support for the mid-arch region of your foot.

Begin stretching exercises to lengthen the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia as recommended by a health care professional. This is usually done when the acute pain has resolved or improved.

The following medications can relieve pain and inflammation:

Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
Naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn)
Acetaminophen (Tylenol)

Hope this helps,
