I think the advice you got from the other post is good.  I delayed 
trating mine until it became a real problem. I hope yours is not this 
bad yet.  I would take the meds( Advil worked for me) and the 
stretching excercises seem reasonable as does the cold, however, the 
cold tends to contact tissue and may offset the stretching.  I would 
definitely get the Spenco orthotic.

If this does not let you hike pain free then I would seek a 
professional opinion.
