There are many kinds of casts. Soft cast, boot casting. I agree all can aggravate the other foot. What kind of physical therapy treatments are you getting I would recommend ultrasound, electrical stimulation. IF you can't wear a cast then ESWT could be a very good option for your chronic plantar fasciitis.
