I keep an old tennis ball at my WFH desk and will constantly just massage the bottom of my foot with it by stepping on it and rolling it around. Haven’t had any issues for a really long time and it’s a good distraction during the day.

I had it for about 6 months and finally feel better. I wore slippers with a sole in the house consistently (this was at the recommendation of my NP), I wore supportive sneakers if I was walking any sort of distance (no ballet flats or flip flops) and when I remembered I stretched or rolled my foot with a frozen water bottle.

M1, i did this exact same and it got better. Wear supportive shoes inside (ugh i hated this), frozen water bottle 2x daily and youtube plantar fasciitis exercises. Volia.

I have same issue ... what kind of shoes do you have? I just got asics and they are helping

I wear flats but I have inserts. I don’t wear any shoes inside the house and I have not gone outside much in a few months. My exercise is walking in the house and I got the pain back. I have a plantar fasciitis sock which shifted the pain to the back/sides of the foot. Ice water bottle gave a frost bite in the past so I don’t use that to roll me foot. Don’t want to wear the compression sock all the time. :(

I have inserts and shoes that help with flat feet issues. I don’t run a ton but my runs have gotten better. I also do stretching and flexing exercises after my runs.

Had it for a few months and couldn’t wear flat shoes the entire time. I was only able to actually walk around in chunky heeled booties - sounds weird but it works
