Plantar Fasciitis

Hi,
I play basketball at my high school. My heel has been very painful to walk and run on. I asked the trainer about it, he said it sounds like plantar fasciitis. He wraps it before games and practice. I ice it after practice and take a tennis ball and roll it around on my foot to stretch it out. The pain hasn't decreased. Some pain has moved to the outside of my heel too. What can I do to help my heel heal? Do i need to see a orthopedic doctor?
