There are other solutions however they all have draws back and could cause more problems. More about how to treat Plantar Fasciitis.

WebMD and Mayo Clinic suggest the following:

  • Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve) may ease the pain and inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis.
Surgical or other procedures:

When more-conservative measures aren’t working, your doctor might recommend:

  • Steroid shots. Injecting a type of steroid medication into the tender area can provide temporary pain relief. Multiple injections aren’t recommended because they can weaken your plantar fascia and possibly cause it to rupture, as well as shrink the fat pad covering your heel bone.                                                                        
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy. In this procedure, sound waves are directed at the area of heel pain to stimulate healing. It’s usually used for chronic plantar fasciitis that hasn’t responded to more-conservative treatments. This procedure may cause bruises, swelling, pain, numbness or tingling and has not been shown to be consistently effective.                                                                                                       
  • Surgery. Few people need surgery to detach the plantar fascia from the heel bone. It’s generally an option only when the pain is severe and all else fails. Side effects include a weakening of the arch in your foot.

Each and every time you have heel pain with first step out of bed, after sitting a while, or after exercise, you are re-injuring your foot.
