Plantar fasciitis surgery can be quite effective. Endoscopic plantar fasciotomy is about 80% successful. Also EPAT procedure which is not covered by most insurances can be about 80% effective as well. It does not require an incision or an injection. I would first try conservative treatment first.

Applying ice, elevation, and some light compression can help. Depending on the severity of the injury, sometimes X-rays are needed to evaluate the bone to see if there is a fracture.
