First Aid for Ankle and Foot Pain
It’s always worth trying a cold pack to reduce Ankle and Foot Pain. If joints are not moving freely, they will swell and become painful. A cold pack will help to keep any swelling under control.
Wrap a cold pack (a bag of frozen peas works well) in a couple of tea towels and place it over the area of pain for 20 minutes only. Put it back in the freezer for at least an hour to allow your skin to recover, then repeat. If the cold pack is too cold for comfort, put another tea towel around it. Don’t use heat.
If you are taking medication for the pain, it will be an anti-inflammatory drug – to cool things down. If you use the medication with heat, you will be cancelling one out with the other! Use a cold pack to enhance the effect of the medication.
A swollen foot should also be elevated to help reduce the swelling.
