Stretching helps a lot. I had this for a year and boy did it hurt and was hard to get rid of. I had trouble sitting still which probably caused it to linger. Stretching did make it bearable. I finally went to the doctor and got some custom orthotic inserts for my shoes and it finally went away. I had a good doctor too and I convinced him to shoot me up with cortisone so I could do a 50 mile hike ending on Mt Whitney. Cortisone only works for a couple weeks though and I don't recommend it.
