Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammation on the bottom of the foot. It's often accompanied by heel spurs which are calcium deposits that cause bony protrusions on the underside of the heel bone. "99 percent of the time conservative treatment works," said Commonwealth Health podiatrist Laura Virtue-Delayo, DPM. The treatment starts with cold compresses. Dr. Virtue-Delayo said, "I like when patients freeze a water bottle and roll their heel on it because that will massage it and ice it." Simple stretches several times a day can also spell relief.

Dr. Virtue-Delayo also recommends wearing running shoes even if you don't run. They're designed to take the wear and tear off your feet. Look for signs of excessive wear on the heels or soles and consider getting orthotic shoe inserts which may help give you the heel pain relief you need.
