DOWN foot ice wraps are ideal for foot and ankle first aid, as well as relieving chronic foot and ankle pain.
Foot and Ankle Pain and Your Shoes
It is impossible to overemphasize the importance of wearing proper footwear for all of your activities. That means when you go to work, go shopping, play sports, dance, do work around the house, and everything else you do.
Ill-fitting shoes, shoes that are inappropriate for the activity, or shoes that are just uncomfortable, will always lead to problems with your feet and ankles and other parts of your body, too. Improper footwear puts you at risk for serious injury when playing sports. During less strenuous activities, poor footwear slowly causes damage and pain.
Causes of Foot and Ankle Pain
Tendonitis of the Achilles tendon, sprains, and strains are common causes of ankle pain. Acute injuries which do not fully heal can lead to chronic pain.
The feet and ankles are very susceptible to micro-trauma injuries. Constantly repeating these minor injuries can lead to tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, and arthritis of the foot and ankle. Common culprits are running or playing sports on surfaces that are too hard, too soft, or uneven, or as mentioned above, while wearing improper footwear.
Tendonitis can trike tendon in the ankle and foot besides the Achilles tendon, too. Left untreated, tendonitis can lead to ligament injury.
Relief from Foot and Ankle Pain
Icing your foot and ankle can relieve both acute and chronic pain, and is the treatment of choice recommended by foot and ankle specialists for many conditions.
Immediately after a foot or ankle injury, such as a sprain, R.I.C.E. is your best first aid. R.I.C.E. stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
Icing continues to be used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain as the foot and ankle heal. It is also used to treat the pain in conditions that develop slowly, over time, such as plantar fascistic.
Relief for Sore, Tired Feet
If you spend a lot of time on your feet every day, you may experience pain and swelling in your feet and ankles, even if you wear the proper footwear. At the end of the day, all you want to do is put your feet up. You can sooth your tired feet and bring down the swelling more quickly by using I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps while elevating your feet. You will feel refreshed and comfortable in not time, so you can get on with enjoying your evening, cooking dinner, going out for a night on the town, or whatever you want or need to do.
