8 Self-Care Tips to Soothe Sore Feet at Home
Millions of people experience foot pain when walking. After all, our feet act as shock absorbers for the rest of our body and we constantly put them through the wringer, whether it's on a run, in a pair of heels or standing for long periods.
And when you’re in pain, it’s hard to focus on anything else. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also keep you from living your life to the fullest.
Luckily there are a few things you can do. Here are 8 easy tips to help soothe your sore feet.
1. Stretch your muscles
Stressed muscles can spasm and cause pain. To offset the tightness and help your sore feet, try adding these simple exercises to your daily routine. It is recommended that you repeat each movement a few times over.
Please note: if any of these stretches cause you pain, stop immediately and consider seeking professional medical advice.
2. Strengthen your foot mobility
Improving your mobility now can go a long way towards preventing potentially painful issues such as plantar fasciitis in the future. So if you want to keep your feet feeling agile and energized, do these simple exercises.
3. Soak your feet
After a long day on your feet, a good soaking can make the world’s difference. This at-home spa treatment can help ease aches and pains in the muscles of your feet, as well as reduce any swelling you may be experiencing.
4. Apply a cold compress to your feet
Another option is cold therapy. Icing your feet can help reduce inflammation and provide relief. You'll be surprised at how quickly and effectively this simple home remedy works.
5. Ditch those heels
They may look nice, but the pain is just not worth it. If possible, we recommend you only wear them on special occasions or invest in good high-heel orthotics/ inserts.
6. Elevate your feet above heart level
Taking time out of your busy schedule to rest your feet on something higher than your heart can do wonders for decreasing fatigue and promoting relaxation. Spending just 15-20 minutes, with your feet raised gives your muscles an opportunity to relax.
7. Release tension with a good foot rub
This simple act of self-care can help soothe aches and pains.
For an added circulation boost, use a foot roller – you'll be giving yourself an invigorating reflexology massage without ever leaving the house.
8. Switch to proper shoes that fit
The biggest culprit of sore feet is ill-fitted footwear. Wearing the incorrect size or shoes with no support can take a toll. So your first step is measuring your feet and then buying a pair that fits.
Measure your feet
Knowing the precise size of your feet puts the control back in your hands and leaves all those moments of anxiety behind when shopping for shoes.
