Home Remedies for Achy Feet

If you’re someone who suffers from achy feet, you know how debilitating the pain can be. Even simple tasks like walking can become a chore when your feet are throbbing. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do at home to ease the pain and get some relief.

Home Remedy #1

One of the simplest home remedies for achy feet is to soak them in warm water. This will help to loosen up the muscles and tendons, and the warmth can also help to reduce inflammation. You can add Epsom salts to the water to further reduce swelling. Just make sure the water isn’t too hot, as this could cause more irritation.

Home Remedy #2

Another easy home remedy is to massage your feet with lotion or cream. This will help to loosen up the muscles and improve circulation. For an extra bit of relief, you can place a cold compress on your feet for 10-15 minutes at a time.

Home Remedy #3

Consider orthotics. If you’re looking for something a little more long-lasting, you might want to try wearing orthotic inserts in your shoes. Orthotics can help to realign your feet and provide support for the arch, which can take pressure off of the muscles and tendons. 

Orthotics can help relieve achiness in the feet. You can get over-the-counter orthotics or custom orthotics if you need a custom fit.
