Foot Pain

I had an ankle reconstruction 2 years ago for a evulsion fracture. I was told the procedure would "tighten" my ankle so it wouldn't be prone to "rolling outward". The ankle is tighter and doesn't roll, but I now have chronic foot pain in the arch. OTC pain meds aren't effective. I have had 2 cortisone shots with no relief. I've tried icing, stretching, heat, orthotics...all with no relief. Additionally, the arch on that foot appears to be somewhat lower than my other foot. I was told (by the same surgeon) that it was NOT related to the surgery. With my options exhausted, he now recommends a Fascia Release. Does this sound right to you? Any thoughts/feedback are greatly apreciated.

Malleoloc for lateral ankle instability. Designed to prevent inversion and eversion. Malleoloc does not restrict plantar and dorsiflexion. Excellent for sports use.
