Why do you think there are so many different (and expensive) treatments for plantar fasciitis aka acute morning heel pain?
Why do I smell a rat? $$$
Lots of money is being made on people's heel pain with fancy gizmos, including custom orthotics that can cost $100s. Didn't work for me, and many others!
The rat I smell? $$$
Advertising budgets for expensive gizmos and empty promises far exceed research budgets for this condition.
That's why I started my own research program six years ago, on a shoestring. None of those gizmos, or medical professionals, helped me with my first attack of horrible morning heel pain. Even though I spent a bunch! They do work for some people, some of the time, and I'm pretty sure I know why. They each change the way you move, in subtle ways. To be honest, the ASTRO is the only one that makes sense, and it's certified (No, I have no links to the product - I just tested it!).
My Current Working Hypothesis: Acute morning heel pain, aka plantar fasciitis, is a progressive condition. In its early stages, it is a nociceptive or neural (nervous system) response to body movement stresses. A warning of worse to come, including tissue damage, if you don't change the way you move!
I will tell you a story that makes more sense than going down the Google Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Rabbit Hole. Take a careful look at the graph, showing data from an online survey (it's still open).
Wishing you happy feet and happy trails.
