Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • If symptoms are mild, you can treat it at home.
  • Rest and elevate your foot and avoid physical activity. Using ice and taking ibuprofen (Advil) can help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Using an arch support or heel wedge in your shoe may also help.

When you may need a provider

  • Your symptoms have not improved in 2–3 weeks.
  • If you can’t walk on the foot, and you have severe pain around the inner ankle and foot bone, get same-day care with your provider, urgent care, or the emergency department.
