Why Do You Feel Foot Pain After Running?

Posted on

Rest
Rest is the number 1 healer to any running injuries. If you keep on running, it will only get worse, if you want to stay active try swimming or cycling while healing.

Ice and Cold
Apply ice packs to reduce the pain, inflammation and swelling to the affected area.

Compression
Use tape or something to wrap the affected area and use splints to support and control the swelling, until the affected area is stable.

Elevation
If you sprain your ankle during your run, elevate it to reduce the swelling.

Stretch
Stretching will reduce the pain and tension on the affected area, gently stretch and massage it.

Pain Relievers
Over counter pain relievers or anti-inflammatory meds such as ibuprofen will help you to relieve the pain and inflammation.

Pushing Hard
Don’t push through pain, any discomfort or pain from running means something is wrong. See your doctor asap.

Interval Running
Is what it actually means, you’ll run for three minutes, then walk for two minutes, then run again for three minutes. This helps your feet take some rest and keep your body guessing.

Mileage Plan
Don’t let your feet reach a fatigued stage, run only as much as you can handle. On other days, push yourself hard. Create a plan on how many miles you’ll run each day.
