Don’t Let A Foot Injury Dampen Your Summer
Being active is how we stay feeling young and agile. Whether it’s on the park path, golf course of mountain pass, your feet are the foundation of your fitness and wellbeing. One wrong move–a slip, twist or strain–can spell weeks of pain and lack of mobility, in addition to being housebound, when you could be enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
Know your feet
It’s easy to overlook–since our feet perform so well most of the time–but each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 ligaments, muscles and tendons. If any of those are out of whack, or injured not, only will your feet hurt, you’ll begin to notice alignment issues elsewhere.
Get the right footwear
Wherever your day takes you, and whatever the activity, putting your feet in the right foot gear can be the deciding factor between continued fun or disabling injury. The range of footwear available today is designed for every category of sport, fitness routine, and activity. That little extra time you spend securing the right shoe will help your feet stay stable, and give the proper comfort and support. It’s well worth it compared to just “winging it” with substandard footwear that will not give you optimal performance, nor protection.
Avoid flimsy flips
Flip flops in summer months are easy and comfortable however they lack support and foot protection from everyday hazards. Add a few rain showers and you can easily slip and slide into a foot injury that will surely dampen your summer fun. However, there are better designed and more stable foot flips available that still give you the freedom of that lightweight, airy feeling. Check out Aetrex for premium designed-for-healthy-feet summer flips here.
First steps to relieve pain and promote healing
If you find yourself with an ankle or general foot sprain or strain, the RICE method is a simple self-care technique that helps reduce swelling, ease pain, and speed up healing. You can treat minor injuries with the RICE method at home. If you have pain or swelling that gets worse or doesn’t go away, see a doctor.Regardless of what’s causing the pain, there are a few things you can do to reduce pain and swelling with RICE:
- Resting the foot.
- Icing the foot with covered cold packs regularly for 20 minutes at a time.
- Compressing your foot by wearing an elastic bandage.
- Elevating your foot above your heart to reduce swelling.
This method includes the following four steps:
Step 1: Rest
Pain is your body’s signal that something is wrong. As soon as you’re hurt, stop your activity, and rest as much as possible for the first 2 days. Don’t try to follow the “no pain, no gain” philosophy. Doing so with certain injuries, like a moderate to severe ankle sprain, can make the damage worse and delay your recovery. Doctors say you should avoid putting weight on the injured area for 24 to 48 hours. Resting also helps prevent further bruising.
Step 2: Ice
Ice is a tried-and-true tool for reducing pain and swelling. Apply an ice pack (covered with a light, absorbent towel to help prevent frostbite) for 15-20 minutes every two to three hours during the first 24 to 48 hours after your injury. Don’t have an ice pack? A bag of frozen peas or corn will work just fine.
Step 3: Compression
This means wrapping the injured area to prevent swelling. Wrap the affected area with an elastic medical bandage (like an ACE bandage). You want it to be snug but not too tight — if it’s too tight, it’ll interrupt blood flow. If the skin below the wrap turns blue or feels cold, numb, or tingly, loosen the bandage. If these symptoms don’t disappear right away, seek immediate medical help.
Step 4: Elevation
This means raising the sore body part above the level of your heart. Doing so reduces pain, throbbing, and swelling. It’s not as tricky to do as you might think. For example, if you have an ankle sprain, you can prop your leg up on pillows while sitting on the sofa. The CDC recommends you keep the injured area raised whenever possible, even when you’re not icing it.
Other tips for relieving pain on the outside of your foot include:
- wearing comfortable, supportive shoes
- stretching your feet and legs for at least 10 minutes before exercising
- cross-training, or switching up your exercise routine, to give your feet a break
The key to avoiding injury is mainly common sense: don’t run the risk of wearing shoes that don’t match your activity–or are worn out–and don’t provide the best support and protection. Always think twice about your terrain and take your time navigating your steps to avoid slipping and twisting your ankle, or stubbing your toes, which is the most common way people end up holding up and injured.
