Treating the first symptoms of
plantar fasciitis with rest and ice can help prevent
your heel pain from becoming long-lasting (chronic). This treatment is less
successful after the problem has become chronic.
Ice your heel
when you have pain, to control the inflammation associated with overactivity or
high stress on the plantar fascia. There are a number of ways to do this. Your
doctor may have suggestions on what works best.
