This is a good idea one of my patients is using. But you may want to know how long it will take to heal. If it was a bone we could say it would take about 6-8 weeks but unfortunately with a tear of the plantar fascia it may take longer.
I have a patient now who doesn't have any pain when walking but when running she has more pain. This can be very frustrating for those suffering with a tear. Here are some helpful websites to learn more about plantar fascia tear that is different than plantar fasciitis.
