Do you get foot pain?
We know there is always a reason for pain, and foot pain is no different. If you get sore feet at the end of the day, or cramping in your toes, there may be more than one contributing factor. The best approach is to identify the cause of pain and address it, but in the meantime there are some simple exercises you can do whenever you feel pain to find the relief you need.
Can orthotics help?
Supports such as orthotics, or high-arch shoes are sometimes utilised to help with symptoms, but they are less effective as a long term solution and may not address the cause of foot issues.
6 easy ways to find relief from your foot pain
- Sit down, and remove your sock, putting it onto the ground. Now, pick up your sock using ONLY your toes. Repeat this until you get tired.
- Remove your shoes, and begin walking on your tip-toes, keeping your heels as high off the ground as possible. Repeat this until you get tired.
- Sitting down, try and separate your big toe from your other toes. Make sure you keep your foot flat on the ground. Repeat this until you get tired.
- Try stretching your calf muscle. Roll a towel into a log, place it on your floor, put your foot on the towel and lunge forwards.
- Try massaging your foot muscles with a golf ball.
