I get them a lot too - my fixed gear only hurts them though when they are flared up from running.
The one thing that has finally seemed to work is the strengthing i have been doing. When you are sitting in a chair, legs in front of you and 90 degree in knee (normal desk posture) raise your toes off the ground (heels grounded) as high and as fast as possible for a minute. do the same with your heels. I have been doing this twice a day and it really helps.
another tip is for movement - when you are sitting in chair, hold one leg straight out and draw the alphabet in the air with your big toe, moving only your foot, not your whole leg.
