emeraldjules - Biking is an excellent alternative because it's no-impact.

A doctor once suggested this to me for plantar fascitis, and it was one of the best suggestions I've ever gotten. Take a 1 liter soda bottle or water bottle, fill it with water, and freeze it completely. (Leave a little bit of room in the bottle because the water will expand when frozen.) Put the frozen bottle on the floor and roll the sole of your foot on it for about 15 minutes. It reduces the inflamation, gently stretches the plantar fascia, and offers some pain relief.

I used to do this once (sometimes twice) every day, and that frozen bottle lived in my freezer.
