Treatment Ratings

    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Ice, Massage, Taping, Heel Lifts, Stretching
    Not Improved
    Orthotics, Shockwave, Supportive Shoes

Have tried many things including the non FDA approved Shockwave Theapy which has not been effective after the four recommended treatments. I find the best thing for pain relief is REST which is nearly impossible as I work on my feet all day in healthcare. Dynamic stretching especially the kind that Yoga can give is also temporarily effective.
