Niagara Foot Pain Treatments at Home
Let’s face it, your feet carry the load weight of the body. Swollen feet at day’s end, walking and moving the feet and ankles up and down can help as it circulates blood back to the heart.
We see it every day at Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre with patients from St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls and surrounding areas. The swelling that results causes pain, and the soreness can be complicated by footwear that does not fit properly or bad quality shoes. Elio’s team of experts suggest you try rubbing your feet and then elevating your legs for an easy treatment at home.
Here are more tips for simple treatments for foot pain you can try at home.
1. Stretching exercises can help alleviate foot pain. Stand with arms out in front and pressing against a wall or other surface, bend at the waist and extend one foot behind the other until you feel the stretch in your calf. Your heels should be flat on the ground.
3. Get foot pain relief by soaking your feet in Epsom salt foot baths. The soothing bath can relieve muscle soreness. Epsom salt’s therapeutic effect may be connected to magnesium sulfate, which could also draw excess fluid from the feet.
5. Weight loss could be part of a remedy because your feet and ankles support your entire body weight, even a drop in a few pounds can reduce a substantial amount of weight off the foot. Consider the fact that each pound of weight lost is almost 3 to 4 pounds in lowered pressure on the feet and ankles.
If the pain continues following rest over night, or is aggravated, which hinders you from stepping through the day or enjoying your lifestyle, contact Elio’s to schedule a foot assessment by a Certified Canadian Pedorthist. We can help patients with foot pain in St Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls, Welland, and neighbouring communities. There could be one of many different ailments including f tendon problems, arthritis in the foot or ankle, or a stress fracture. We can see if custom orthotics are a treatment for your condition.
