There is no bets way only combinations, my analogy is to think of a wagon wheel
The hub of the wheel is to get a pair of orthotics from a podiatrist (To get referred to a podiatrist please call Tha SA Podiatry assn 0861 100 249) these you use as much as possible, then you add
Physio
Cortisone injection
Night splints
Shock wave therapy
Shoe change
Above all you need to be patient and compliant vas this condition can take some time to go away
