Our feet are what keep us mobile, and even the smallest foot pain can cause us to stop in our tracks, both figuratively and literally. Foot pain can be debilitating, and you do not have to be an athlete to suffer from it.
Foot pain can originate from any number of sources including:
- Repeated stress of the ligaments and joints;
- Poor fitting shoes;
- Structural foot deformities including flat feet, hammer toe and bunions; and
- Being on your feet all day at work. Standing or walking all day on concrete floors is particularly stressful to your feet and lower back.
Massage therapy can provide temporary relief from foot pain and discomfort. The Therapeutic Foot Massager is a portable pain relief tool that helps reduce stress and relieves the pain and cramping often associated with foot disorders.
To use the massager, simply place it on the floor, and roll the bottom of your foot over the massage knob or roller. Adjusting the amount of pressure that you place on the knob or roller provides you with either a gentle or deep tissue massage. Best of all, you can fill the massager with hot or cold water for targeted relief.
If your foot pain is chronic, you should seek medical advice for treatment of your condition. Left untreated, this pain can potentially manifest into more serious foot and joint issues.
