If you’re like most people, you’ve experienced the pain and discomfort of sore feet at some point in your life. Whether you walked a little too far in your new heels or tried to keep up with the cardio instructor at the gym, we all know what it’s like to have our feet that ache and swell. Here are some ways you can get relief and get back on your feet in no time. 

1. Soak Your Feet 

Soaking your feet in the water is a great way to relieve achy muscles. Running yourself a nice warm bath or even filling a small basin to soak your feet is enough to help soothe any discomfort. If you want to reap the benefits of soaking, adding Epsom salt can aid in faster recovery. Epsom salt is known to help decrease inflammation, soften callused feet and even help with various foot ailments. 

2. Use Ice 

Ice is another excellent way to relieve sore feet since it helps to constrict blood vessels and swelling. One thing to keep in mind is to apply ice to acute foot-related injuries. The best example to use ice would be if you sprained your ankle, stubbed a toe, or sustained any other immediate injury. On the other hand, heat should be used for more chronic conditions and foot pain. 

3. Wear Proper Shoes 

One of the most significant factors when it comes to alleviating foot pain is wearing the proper shoes. It might seem like a no-brainer to many people; however, it’s often easier said than done. Some people may not even realize it is their shoe causing the issues until they take a closer look. Wearing the right shoes can make a world of difference and ultimately can worsen your sore feet.
