What is this simple technique I'm talking about? It's icing. Now icing is great for Plantar Fasciitis because it helps not only with inflammation but also with pain.

You'll need an ice bottle and what we usually recommend is using an old 600 ml coke bottle, filling it with water and popping it in your freezer. Using this ice bottle underneath your foot, roll it underneath your arch and up to your heel, continuously back and forth. The best two times of the day to do this are at lunch time, when you sit down for a break, and at the end of the day, maybe while you're watching TV. If you do this twice a day, for 15 minutes, you can actually get great relief from your pain. So to recap, get an ice bottle, use it twice a day, for 15 minutes at a time, and you'll be well on your way.
