Foot inflammation is caused by a number of medical conditions that include gout, plantar fasciitis, calcaneal spur, tendinitis, diabetic ulcers, gangrene, stress fractures, or tarsal tunnel syndrome. When your foot is injured or irritated, inflammation occurs as the body's normal protective response. The response brings increased blood flow to the foot, resulting in foot swelling, pain, and additional redness and warmth to the area.
The best treatment to reduce inflammation is R.I.C.E. therapy. Using Icy Feet to ice your feet helps make this treatment easy and hassel-free.
