Hello..... No single treatment works best for everyone with plantar fasciitis.Give your feet a rest. Cut back on activities that make your foot hurt. Try not to walk or run on hard surfaces.To reduce pain and swelling, try putting ice on your heel. Don't walk in bare foot.Get a new pair of shoes. If you still have pain after 6 to 12 month doctor will use steroids and splints.
