I have undergone 2 surgeries for plantar fasciitis and for tarsal tunnel it had relieved some pain but within a year it was back now I have it in my other foot as well and is very hard to walk. I had cortisone injections but found out I was allergic to them as they made my heart start racing and my blood pressure and heart rate was so high they said I was at high risk of a stroke. I tried special shoes, slept with a boot had a specialist make orthopedics for shoes which totally made them worse. I also have neuropathy and the only shoes I can find that give some what of a relief

are sketchers memory foam walkers the are just slip on's but he looks don't matter when you're in that much pain and with support socks.

Would love to hear what others find helpful as I do the stretches and I roll a frozen bottle of water under my arch then go from front to back.

I definitely would not recommend the surgery.
