The foot is made from a series of bones that connect together to form joints in order to create one large movement. In order for the movement to exist there are multiple layers of muscles which all 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, which could result in you limping with pain, difficulties when sleeping, and frustration in not knowing when it will get better.
TAKE BACK CONTROL
There are many strategies that can be used to immediately reduce the pain, here are a few to get you started.
First tip – Cold Can.
A cold compress will give immediate relief to the foot. When the bottom of the foot becomes sore and painful a cold item placed in position can soothe the inflammation process, reducing the pain relatively quickly. The benefit of using a cold circular item allows you to give a good stretch underneath the foot meanwhile reducing the pain at the same time.
Second tip – Get advice.
Consult an experienced physiotherapist regarding your problem, they are experts at giving specific advice and exercises to ensure your recovery is efficient, and are well equipped with hands on technique’s which are able to give immediate relief.
