I think it is better to rest. I tend to think of it as treating a strain/sprain on the bottom of the foot. The streching is really to make sure you have a full range of motion so you are not reinjuring the foot with every step. Building muscle always stabilizes an area and helps in many ways. When there is pain at the end of the day , you need rest and mabe ice. Dr. Biehler
