Recently, I have been using a heating pad, a electric massager and an oinment (ben gay or aspercream - but do not use ben gay or any heat actived cream and the heating pad at the same time, it causes a bad burn). I have noticed an improvement in a matter of days. I massage my heel for 15-20 minutes daily with the ointment to work it in. Also, I heard if you place your foot in whirlpool that will help. If you can't get to a whirlpool, a massager will work as well. It is best if you do it before retiring to bed.
The heating pad, I put it on before and after my massage (don't use Ben Gay or any heat activated cream).
AND WEAR VERY COMFORTABLE SHOES THAT WILL CUSHION YOUR HEEL.
I have been suffering PF on my left foot for 2 months due to excessive step areobics. I was told to lay off until my heel gets back to normal.
I hope it will work for you.
Most important, be very patient.
