Welcome to the geezer zone. Did the plantar surgery "work"? My Dr. said he won't do them.
What I've found is compression socks for after runs/soccer, and alternating hot/cold water. My regular gym routine now includes allocating 30 minutes at the end to sit in the unheated pool and jacuzzi. Outside shower, then right into the cold pool for 3 minutes. Over to jacuzzi until warm again, several minutes of leg stretches, then another plunge into the cold water for 3 minutes.
