The foot is made from a series of bones that connect to form joints to create one large movement. There are multiple layers of muscles that work together to give stability to the foot, as well as awareness of where your foot is positioned at all times. There is a connective tissue that covers the bottom of the foot which provides stability and gives extra protection. When the muscles of the foot become extremely tight or fatigued, this causes a knock-on effect to the connective tissue which can cause this sheath to become tight and inflamed. This could result in you limping with pain, difficulties when sleeping, and general frustration.
TAKE BACK CONTROL
Many strategies can be used to immediately reduce your pain, here are a few to get you started:
First tip – Cold Can for foot pain
A cold compress will give immediate relief. When the bottom of the foot becomes sore and painful a cold item placed in position can soothe the inflammation-reducing the pain relatively quickly. The benefit of using a cold circular item gives a good stretch underneath the foot while reducing the pain at the same time.
The second tip – Get advice
Consult an experienced physiotherapist regarding your foot pain. They are experts at giving specific advice and exercises and are well equipped with hands-on technique’s which can give immediate relief.
