3 Ways to Relieve Foot Pain for Good
Did you know 88% of women wear shoes too small for their feet? The wrong shoe size is just one of the reasons behind your aching feet. Click through to get to the bottom of your foot pain, and find your way to relief.
You already know wearing heels isn't great for your feet, but flats may be just as bad. The lack of support can cause painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the tissue that runs from heel to toes)—and it's not only your feet that suffer. Flimsy shoes can lead to knee, hip and back pain. To avoid injury, limit these styles to events that don't involve much standing or walking, and consider using orthotic inserts. Over-the-counter options are available for most shoes—even heels and flats. But for more serious conditions, such as fallen arches, see a podiatrist for custom inserts.

The next time you tone your arms or abs, exercise your tootsies, too. You'll strengthen the dozens of muscles, tendons and ligaments that make up the foot. Try this simple move: Lie on your back with knees bent and feet on floor. Open your knees out to the sides as far as you can without allowing the bottoms of your big toes to lift off the floor. Hold for 2 seconds, then return knees to start. Do 10 reps.
