Plantar Fascial Stretches For Central Heel Pain??

Will these stretches assist with pain that i'm finding in the center of the heel? I know that Plantar Fasciitis is typically at the base of the heel, closest to the arch, however I can press the center of my heel pad and feel pain. Thanks

Dr Blake's comment: 
Thanks for the comment. Typically, the stretches help some, but ice massage on a frozen sports bottle for 5 minutes 3 times a day works the best. The center of the heel pain is typically bursitis pain, more than fasciitis pain. Hope this helps you. Rich

For Heel Bursitis, massage under the heel itself, in that 2 inch wide area, for 5 minutes  three times per day.
