Staying off the feet for weeks

The biggest thing that has helped mine is giving them rest especially by using properly applied tape. I used to have 'giving them a break' as the number one recommended method of treatment, until it ranked lower in the surveys. But I don't recommend a wwheelchair unless the pain is severe. Muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia lose their strength if there is too much rest for too long.
