Ice for Heel Pain
Treating the first symptoms of plantar fasciitis with rest and ice can help prevent your heel pain from becoming long-lasting (chronic). This treatment is less successful after the problem has become chronic.
Ice your heel when you have pain, to control the inflammation associated with overactivity or high stress on the plantar fascia. There are a number of ways to do this. Your doctor may have suggestions on what works best.
