First off, get good shoes with GREAT support. No heels or flats all day. You need good arch support. I use a golf ball to put pressure on the sore spots. If that is too painful, use a tennis ball. Ice and ibuprofen will help with inflammation. I have tried everything in the book, with the exception of cortisone shots. I have tried the tricks I have mentioned, trained my husband to massage the fascia and even get the best shoes I could buy. I have had plantar fasciitis for more than 3 years. I finally found something that seems to be working, slowly though. If you believe in it, try Chiropractic. Without going in to too much detail, I had x-rays done of my spine and realized that the nerves that go to my feet were being "pinched". I now have been getting regular adjustments 2-3 times a week and have noticed a significant change, I also got a new job that I don't have to stand all day. Try one or more of these options and you should see improvement.
