Tendonitis In The Foot Treatment

The RICE method

The RICE method has been implemented by doctors and proven to work in many situations. Having an injury to the foot can be annoying, but can be quickly healed with Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. With a little support of Optimal Blood Flow, there are medical devices out there that have proven to reduce healing times by the use of their devices.


Cold CompressionIce and compression are always the first steps when dealing with any injury, whether it’s chronic or acute. Inflammation decreases blood flow which increases healing times.



CrutchesCrutches! With any foot/leg injury people are instructed to use crutches. The same applies for a tendon injury. Staying off your foot will help prevent re-injury and speed up healing times.




Pain-Pills(NSAIDs)Pain killers should only be used when not active. You need to tough it out during the day so your body can tell you when you when you’re hurting yourself. You run the risk of hurting yourself really badly if you take pills to numb the pain, because you won’t know what you’ve done to damage yourself until the pain killers wear off.




Calf StretchStretch only if your body tells you it’s okay. Remember that stretching should feel good, and shouldn’t be painful. Pain means that you’re re-injuring yourself and you need to take a step back.




Optimal Blood FlowHeat to stimulate blood flow. Optimal blood flow is imperative for quick healing. Once the inflammation is down, the paths are cleared for nutrient rich blood to invade the injured area, helping speed up recovery times.
