If foot pain is sneaking up on you at the end of your day, join forces with an unlikely partner, your freezer! And, no, we’re not talking ice cream! If you’re looking for quick relief, get these 3 items into your freezer ASAP!
Just about any type of water bottle will do the trick! Fill it with some H2O (we recommend about 70% Full) and pop it into the freezer. Once frozen, a water bottle can provide great relief foot pain. From a seated position, roll your arch on the frozen water bottle applying pressure to massage your arch.
Putt that ball right into the freezer. Once frozen, this is perfect for targeting specific pain points. From a seated position, move the ball around on your foot. Spend extra time around those painful areas and don’t be afraid to apply a little pressure.
While you’re waiting for the water bottle and golf ball to freeze, snag that frozen bag of vegetables that have been hiding in the back of the freezer since 1997 (peas work great!). The cold may be a little overwhelming at first so toss on your favorite show as a distraction and ice for 15-20 minutes.
Remember, whenever working with frozen temperatures, make sure you do not apply directly to the skin. An everyday household towel is a great option to help offer some protection from the cold.
Getting cold feet about trying one of these methods? Cold temperatures can help reduce inflammation and provide relief from a long day on your feet. What other household items have you used to relieve foot pain? After a long day on your feet or in the evenings, a foot massage using a cold treatment method is a great way to help reduce foot pain.
