Foot pain is a common complaint and can occur as a result of wearing bad shoes, wearing high heels for extended periods of time, wearing shoes without proper support in the arch or instep, and most commonly from being on your feet the whole day.
Massaging the feet can help with joint pain and aid recovery after an injury, as well as reduce muscle soreness. Both simple foot massage and reflexology can offer a surprising number of health benefits including: Relaxation and Stress Relief, Better Sleep, Improved Circulation, Lower Blood Pressure, Injury Prevention and Faster Recovery, Alleviation of Headaches and Migraines, Decreased Feelings of Anxiety, Natural Pain Relief, Nail and Skin Health, Cure for Swelling of the Legs*
It can also prevent future injuries such as plantar fasciitis – one of the most common causes of heel pain which sees the thick band of tissue running across the bottom of your foot and connecting your heel bone to your toe becoming painful and inflamed.
Too much standing, running, sports involving lots of jumping or hard landing, being overweight and wearing shoes with inadequate support all put you at risk of plantar fasciitis.
When dealing with foot pain there are a number of things to consider as to the cause of the pain. Once you have established weather the cause is muscular or structural a few natural ways to alleviate the pain are:
1. Wear the Correct Shoes. Starting with the right shoes on your feet can go a long way. Look for shoes with good arch and sole support.
2. Rest. Nothing relieves tired feet better than taking all the weight off of them and getting some rest. Simply prop those tired soles on a pillow on the couch, elevate at a 45 degree angle and relax.
3. Soak your feet in hot water with Epsom salt.
4. Stretch. Point and flex, draw the alaphabet
