    Relax.Massage foot gently, don't walk on uneven surfaces, Do icing around the painful area. Always Wear Comfy shoes. And ask her to elevate foot whenever resting or sleeping. To reduce pain Take Ibuprofen
    As she is waiter so tell her to use orthotic pad in shoes and do some foot exercise regularly.

    Shock absorbing foot orthotics might help you. Try asking an orthotist about foot orthotics with ppt and plastizote. Very helpful...

    I stand in the work place a lot. After i get off work, I usually roll my foot with a forzen water bottle. The rolling massages the foot and tendon while the ice deals with some of the pain. Feels great after a long day.

    I deal with this so often, It is the number one cause of heel pain after all. Many people have reported great improvement by employing the following methods:

    1. Ice pack

    2. Stretching before getting out of bed. This loosens the ligament relieving the stress on the plantar fascia.

    3. Some sort of brace, night splint, insole, or special shoe.

    Good luck to your wife!
