Last April my left heel started to have pain and after going to the doctor I found out that I have plantar fasciitis. We first tried a cortisone injection and tape for two weeks. After two weeks the pain was not better. I bought two new pair of shoes and went back to the doctor. We tried re-taping it and along with stretching it helped to some point. I then purchased orthotics and along with the stretching it has helped alot. I still wear a splint to sleep in and have for the past 6 months without it I have sever pain when getting out of bed in the morning. After I stretch in the morning it is tolerable. I still tape up my foot when I go on hikes and take an anti inflammatory to make sure I don't have to spend the rest of the day icing and resting it.
