The number of Americans facing common foot problems and serious foot conditions is increasing every day. The American Podiatric Medical Association reports that 75% of Americans will undergo some type of foot problem over the course of their lives. Most of these foot-related problems stem from abuse, and some are caused by congenital malformations and disabilities. Some of the most common foot ailments, where Icy Feet makes icing easy, are explained below:
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. The most common complaint is pain and stiffness in the bottom of the heel. The heel pain may be dull or sharp. The bottom of the foot may also ache or burn. Icy Feet can help to relieve all of these symptoms. Learn more about plantar fasciitis.
A strain is the result of an injury to either a muscle or a tendon, which is common in the foot or leg. The strain may be a simple stretch in your muscle or tendon, or it may be a partial or complete tear in the muscle-tendon combination. The recommended treatment for a strain is the same as for a sprain: R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, and elevate). Learn more about muscle strains.
Bone spurs form in the feet in response to tight ligaments, which result from activities such as dancing and running. These activities put continued stress on the feet. Bone spurs can also form in response to pressure from being overweight or from poorly fitting shoes. Learn more about bone spurs.
A bone spur can form on the bottom of the heel. Pressure at the back of the heel from frequently wearing shoes that are too tight can cause a bone spur to form on the back of the heel. Learn more about heel spurs.
Throbbing foot pain is a common problem for those people who usually jog and walk as a form of exercise. This type of pain comes and goes depending upon the use of the feet under vigorous activities, such as running marathons, jogging, or walking. Learn more about throbbing foot pain.
The sesamoids can become bruised, inflamed, or even fractured if the initial pain and irritation is ignored and physical activity is continued. Icing regularly with Icy Feet helps! Learn more about bruised sesamoids.
