Achilles Tendonitis Foot Pain Relief
Inflammation of the tendon, known as Achilles tendonitis, usually is due to overuse. The tendon gets weaker and susceptible to injuries with age. If you overwork the tendon—say, by spending a few hours on the dance floor or the basketball court—the fibers can develop small tears and get inflamed. It typically takes at least three months for it to heal completely. In the meantime, don’t engage in high-impact exercises such as running, and switch to low-impact activities such as biking or swimming. Also…
Start with ice. Ice is one of the best ways to reduce inflammation and help the tendon heal.

Morton’s neuroma is a thickened nerve in the ball of your foot. It typically causes sharp pain or burning that gets worse when you walk. The abnormal growth of nerve tissue is the body’s response to irritation—usually from shoes that are too tight or from wearing high heels. Anything that puts repetitive pressure on the toes, including activities such as jogging, can cause Morton’s neuroma.
Wear wider shoes. Giving the toes more room to move reduces pressure and causes the neuroma to shrink back to normal, possibly within a month or two.
Lifestyle changes provide foot pain relief.
A thick band of tissue (the plantar fascia) runs across the bottom of the foot. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch. Small tears in the tissue can cause burning/stabbing pain, particularly in the morning.
Important: Get a second opinion if your doctor recommends surgery. About 90% of cases heal with conservative care within a year.
Apply ice. Hold an ice pack over the painful area for 15 or 20 minutes, three or four times a day.
