Elevate Your Feet
As soon as you get home after a long day, don’t be ashamed to kick your feet up. Use a pillow or raised surface to elevate your feet at a 45-degree angle to your body. Elevation reduces pressure in your legs and encourages blood flow away from your feet. Positioning your feet in this way gives the veins in your legs a break for a few hours and allows blood to flow through the rest of the body. While you're relaxing, wiggle your toes a bit to enhance circulation.
Periodically exercising your feet throughout the day can prevent aches and pains from occurring. If you begin to feel tightness in your feet, shake them out a bit, one foot at a time. Then, relax and flex your toes up and down. If you work on your feet during the day, try to change your stance as often as possible or walk in place as often as possible. To reduce stiffness during the day, grab a chair and remove your shoes, then stretch your feet. Rotate one foot in a circular motion about ten times in one direction and then switch. Finally, grab your toes and gently pull them back and forth.
Alternate Hot & Cold Water Bath
Rotating between a hot and cold water bath gives tired feet much-needed stimulation. Have a seat on the edge of your bathtub and hold your feet under running water for a few minutes. Alternate between hot and cold water, letting your feet sit for a little over a minute before switching the temperature. The contrast in temperature will energize your feet and encourage blood flow. If you have diabetes or circulation issues, don’t expose your feet to such extreme temperatures.
Foam Roll Your Feet
For a quick, simple massage, try foam rolling your feet. This exercise stretches the arch of your feet and relaxes tense muscles. Kick off your shoes and grab your foam roller. A golf ball, tennis ball or bottle of water can produce soothing results too. Roll your foot over the object for about a two minutes, then switch. For a little extra relief, roll your feet over a frozen water bottle.
The Healing Sole: The Key to Foot Pain Relief
Rest, exercise and stretching are all beneficial, but your feet need support for real recovery. The Healing Sole creates an environment for recovery. The shoe is packed with six powerful features that work synergistically to heal the foot.
The Healing Sole gently stretches the plantar fascia at the beginning of each step. As your foot pushes off, the rocker bottom sole sways to reduce tension. Once your foot meets the ground again, the compressible heel and raised arch absorb the weight of the body, reducing pressure at each pain point in the heel. Soft neoprene straps help to hold your foot in place as you move. The latest version of The Healing Sole is equipped with a durable outsole.
