If you injure your foot exercising, wearing the wrong shoes or generally increasing your activity level, “no pain, no gain” is usually not the answer. Here are a few tips that will get you back on your feet, both literally and figuratively speaking!
- Home care should consist of rest, ice, elevation, potential wrapping and anti-inflammatory medication if necessary
- Inspect your shoes to make sure they fit properly and there is adequate room for your toes to wiggle around in the toe box of the shoe.
- An arch support/insole may also help to alleviate your pain, and soft insole liners can also be placed in your shoes for some comfort/cushioning.
- If all else fails, call your local podiatrist 🙂
