Should I be using a spiked ball to roll out my feet, or does a smooth ball work better?

Yes! You can use the spiky ball for plantar fasciitis. Massaging your feet with the spiky ball will help in improving and manipulating muscles and connective tissues in the feet. Reason: because we have more than a hundred muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the foot.
The spiky ball also helps in decreasing the tension and improving the flow to the area that is tight and painful.

Indeed, a spiked ball or any other round object can be used to massage or roll out the soles of the foot. Be sure to not apply too much pressure onto the spiked ball as this may aggravate inflammation and pain in the foot, associated with plantar fasciitis. The goal of rolling out the feet is to stretch and mobilize the muscles found on the underside of the feet.
Stretching the muscles of the sole and calf muscles proves to be beneficial in managing your symptoms common with plantar fasciitis. Orhtotics can also be used to support the arch and cushion the heel as the foot makes contact with the ground.
