The weather is beautiful and you can’t think of a better way to start your morning than with a stroll in the colorful summer surroundings. Yet, you have to say no due to the pain in your feet. Nobody likes to say no to the things they enjoy because of pain. Surprisingly, many don’t try to deal with their pain, and instead, assume it is just a discomfort they will have to live with. There could be a variety of fixable reasons why your feet are in pain. Read on to see if there may be something that can alleviate your pain.
A bunion can happen to anyone, but it often occurs in women. It’s a bony bump that develops on the inside of the foot along the joint of the big toe. It usually develops over time, causing it to increase in pain as it pushes your big toe over to the second. Surgery is needed to correct this, but if you are wanting to prolong surgery or are recovering from surgery, you may find the bunion regulator helpful. It is a device worn at night to help stretch the tendons surrounding the bones, thereby helping correct and keep the bunion from growing larger.
Pronation is the degree to which your foot moves inward. Your foot should roll inward around 15 percent. However, many people have a tendency for their foot to roll more than that inward or outward. Overpronation is when the foot rolls too far inward and supination is when the foot rolls too far outward. Both of these can cause not only foot pain but leg, knee and back pain. Insoles are a great aid in this. You can do this with small heel straights or gel insoles that come in a variety of sizes for kids and adults.
Diabetes and Skin Issues
Diabetes can cause a lot of foot pain including skin issues. If you have dry skin and cracked calluses on your feet, a moisturizing lotion can help aid in pain relief so you can start walking again without wincing.
Three million people suffer from plantar fasciitis. It’s extreme heel pain due to inflammation of the heel tissue that starts at the heel and follows through to your toes. Putting this brace on while you sleep can help to alleviate pain symptoms during the day.
General Foot Disorder
If none of these conditions describe your foot pain, you may benefit from general foot pain relief. End your day with a relaxing foot soak in an Epsom salt solution specifically designed to help with pain relief. If you have a strain, sprain, arthritis or bruising, you may also want to consider a topical pain relief cream. It helps drain toxins and improves blood flow to the hurting area.
