Easy Steps To Curb Heel Pain Efficiently

Pain in heels is always annoying and troublesome. In our everyday life, it is essential to take proper care and attention of our feet. One of the most common types of foot problem is heel pain that occurs either below or behind the heel. Heel pain can cause severe pain and can disrupt our regular activities.

If we follow a few basic steps we can curb heel pain easily and effectively. They are as follows:

1. Wear good shoes
Do not buy shoes just because they look attractive. It must be comfortable enough to wear, neither too tight nor too loose. The sole should protect the feet with adequate arch support while walking. One should also avoid wearing shoes with high heels or small toe area on a daily basis. 

2. Stay slim 
Heel pain can increase if a person accumulates too much of weight. As the upper part of the body gets heavier with added body weight, it puts pressure on the lower part of the body, particularly below in the foot region. 

3. Refrain from strenuous activity
Tremendous pressure on feet is exerted if you spend the entire day by walking or performing strenuous physical activity that requires standing for a longer period. It hurts the tiny ligaments of the foot, resulting in heel pain.

4. Avoid walking over bumpy or rough surfaces
Be always alert while walking over rough, uneven or bumpy surfaces. Walking over such irregular surface areas puts undue pressure on the heel and can cause pain. 

5. Put ice
Ice has the qualities of minimising and lessening the inflammation that leads to pain. For a quick recovery, ice may be applied over the distressed area of the heel for 10 – 15 minutes, 4 to 5 times a day. 

6. Use Orthotic foot pads
Wearing custom-made orthotic footpads can bring a much-needed relief, as they prevent the heels from rubbing over the affected areas. Moreover, they support the heels which help in reducing the pain. 

7. Take rest
If there is severe pain in the heels, one should take rest for a while and restrain from heavy physical activities. It is advisable to raise the leg while taking rest. This would help to reduce the swelling as well as cut down the pain.

The above-mentioned steps are effective ways to combat heel pain. However, if the pain persists, consult an expert physician without further delay.
