I am a fan of doctors that view medicine holistically.

I am sure they help you and I have not tried them. Really, as a guy with clinical pronation of my feet and life long plantar fasciitis, I probably should. I currently make use of NSAID's, good boots and ice to my arches, when it is bothering me. I try to stay on top of a few stretches and exercises in the summer, when I am playing multiple rounds a day.

Maybe I will look for a nice pair of sturdy, waterproof boots with a nice aggressive tread, in a minimalist style, to give a whirl next summer. Anything that can help my feet, is a win in my world.

As someone who has experienced a full rupture of the Achilles I can, without reservations, advise against doing it.
