It is best to use a soft gel type insole or heel cup ....
These help distribute pressure and helps to avoid as much pressure on the insertion point of the plantar fasia ...
I agree with your other measures with the cold application and ibuprofen ...
You might follow up such as with podiatrist to have a steroid injection ...
I hope that this is helpful for you

Thank you and Best Regards,
Usually pain is worst when you FIRST START to walk after a rest
You may do better to massage after a rest ( warm up the heel / plantar fascia ) moderate activity best in long run with this condition
Too much or Too little may do worse...
Gel insole is what I prefer to help this condition ..
Let me know if I may be of further help
