Relieve Back & Foot Pain Without Medication


Standing on your feet all day long can cause some serious back and foot pain. Tired aching feet are hard to ignore when you have to work to survive. As someone who has very high arches on her feet and has to stand for around 12 hours a day I completely understand the pain that comes along with improper support for your feet. 

When your feet are on flat, hard ground all day long it can create pain all the way up your spine. Your feet begin to ache and your legs get sore as well, creating pain that is almost unbearable. There are some great ways to improve your foot support that will in turn take away much of this pain and create an easier and more productive day for you. 

Proper Foot Support

Proper arch support insoles are a very inexpensive and effective way to improve most foot pain that leads to back pain. If you have multiple pairs of nice shoes that you just cannot live without but they happen to hurt your feet due to not having any support this is the perfect solution. Arch support insoles fit into any shoes or boots to create supportive footwear no matter what. Arch support insoles are much less expensive than getting specialty orthotics or orthotic shoes. 

Compression Socks

Wearing compression socks is another great way to improve blood flow and help reduce pain and swelling in the legs due to improper blood flow and inflammation. Compression socks are expensive if you get prescribed pairs but you can find cheaper ones in drug stores and online that work quite well. Compression socks can also help with the prevention of painful varicose veins and swelling from being on your feet all day. 

Diet & Exercise

Exercise regularly to maintain a healthy body weight and keep your joints moving and working properly. Leg workouts are a great way to keep muscles strong and keep mobility in all your limbs. Eating a healthy diet full of fruits and veggies is another great way to reduce inflammation and keep a healthy body weight. Adding collagen supplements to your diet is also a great idea to keep your bones and joints strong and healthy. 

Rest When Your Tired

Rest is so important for your body to properly heal and maintain immunity and energy levels. Getting a 30 minute break for your feet, legs, and back to rejuvenate is great for your heath as it gives your brain a break, lets you take the pressure off of your joints, and gives the body the opportunity to revive some lost energy. Working yourself to death is not nearly as much fun as it sounds and you will be the only one suffering if you don’t take breaks and get proper rest. Proper rest ensures the body has time to grow healthy cells and resting can help you to stay healthy in the long run. Not taking breaks can wear you down and get you sick by running your immune system into the ground. When your tired take the bodies cues and rest, 1 day of taking it easy is better than a week of getting sick due to illness.

I avoided doing all of these things to prevent pain and suffering to my body for years and suffered the consequences. I had to have varicose vein surgery, suffer from major back and foot pain, and suffer from a very weak immune system from not resting properly. I am now implementing these steps into my life regularly to improve my pain daily and it is working like a charm. Take it from me and give it a try, add some arch support insoles, eat a salad, and take a break. The results will be massive, and help you to live a better quality of life.
