Everyone, at some point, in pain of the foot which may prevent them from engaging in activities they love. For people with a regular, lifestyle, active persistent pain in the feet is both a reality and a frustrating disruption of your leisure time. There are, of course, a ton of different causes of pain in the foot – of stress injuries to the feet of the state long term, such as plantar fasciitis, but the purpose of this post is to overcome this pain and return to activity.
Usually the best approach to foot pain is to approach it like any other type of pain: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. If you hurt your foot running or playing basketball all around treatment can usually alleviate much of the swelling and get you moving again within a day or two. This treatment is a good first step, but by no means a complete solution if you have your own seriously injured. If the injury and the pain is much worse after a few days or you can not even get off the couch, it might be time for a doctor visit. Lesson number one is to always listen to your body. This applies to training as well, since many of foot pain can be attributed to repetitive strain injury. The legs are very strong and that is why it often takes time before the signs of stress appear.

Stretching before any activity is always essential for optimal performance. Tearing muscles during exercise is common even after stretching well. This can also be applied to the feet – especially if you experience pain regularly.

Make a heel raises is also beneficial to get the Achilles tendon and calf muscles relaxed before you start any activity. The more versatile your stretching routine, the better. For comprehensive, dynamic sports performance, you need thorough preparation. This is the second and final lesson comes in: wear quality shoes.

For starters, always wear shoes that are well supported in the arch and heel. Having this support effectively cushion with your foot you are jumping and down the court or rugged trails up painfully. Second, if you have pain in the bottom of the foot, there are many great shoes for plantar fasciitis who have characteristics for treating pain and still allow you to perform well. The point is, when you lead an active life, foot pain is a disadvantage that can be easily solved with a little patience and some extra care premises.
