Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Treatments include:

Rehabilitation Measures to Reduce Plantar Fascia Irritation
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.
