How can I relieve the pain caused by plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis can be treated with rest and ice. Place a frozen water bottle over the bottom of your foot for up to 10 minutes. This will calm the spasm and break up some of the tissue. You could also take any type of anti-inflammatory medication. (This answer provided for NATA by the California University of Pennsylvania Athletic Training Education Program.)
