Foot Pain

Foot pain can be managed with stretching, ice, heat, and exercise. Massage therapy and physiotherapy can help. use ice 10 minutes on 10 minutes off as often as possible in the day.

Stretching using towels. Putting your feet in cold water and alternating with hot water – going back and forth – can stimulate the circulation – don’t burn yourself.

Ingrown toenails can be treated at home. Follow the advice on the video below. It is important that the simple strapping be done every day. It can take a few weeks to even months before it works, but I think many times this conservative approach is better than surgery. Please note – I refer to medical alcohol to dry the skin.
