The holidays are such a busy time. Although it’s meant to be a season to be “jolly,” a lot of people spend the holidays worrying and rushing around. It can be difficult to find time to take care of yourself. When you spend so much time on your feet shopping for family and making holiday meals, too, it can be harder to manage your nerve pain. Misfiring and painful nerves shouldn’t interrupt your holiday plans, though. A little nerve pain management can help you soothe your feet as a holiday treat.
Nerve pain has many sources, so knowing why your feet suffer from misfiring nerves can definitely help you control the problem. If you’re living with diabetes, making efforts to control your blood sugar levels and maintaining healthy circulation is important for your foot comfort. If the pain is related to a pinched nerve or the side effects of an injury, then addressing the underlying problem will help you manage the discomfort.
There are, however, a number of specific ways you can keep your feet comfortable. One is to exercise regularly. Walking is one of the best ways to do this. This increases your circulation and works your muscles without straining the feet too much. Also, try pampering your feet with a warm foot soak. This can help relax your lower limbs and encourage improved circulation. A massage may help as well, for similar reasons. Some people even combine a foot massage with natural oils that help relax the body, or heat creams that relieve pain over time.
More traditional pain relief methods may also be helpful, especially for persistent nerve pain. Sometimes numbing creams can offer slight relief. Our team might recommend safe pain medications, too. In any case, we’ll work with you to determine the right mix of home care and other treatments to allow you to enjoy the holidays without painful feet.
