Again may I suggest an arch support from the Dr. Scholl’s kiosk and if that is not effective then a visit to a foot and ankle orthopedist or a podiatrist would be in order.
Epsom salts just spends your money. It is of no value for this.
Hot water increases inflammation although while doing it it feels better.
A) roll on a frozen ice bottle (not tennis ball)
B) do calf stretching exercises (the real cure)
C) try contrast baths. Soak in ice water for 1 min followed by Luke warm water for 3 min and repeat for 20 min.
D) purchase a Dorsal night splint on line
E) purchase Power Steps on line
F) if no improvement after 30 days then go to a podiatrist for Rx meds and an injection.
