Foot pain is probably the most common ailments known to man. It affects everyone, young or old, and comes from a variety of areas. It might be the toes, the heel, the arch, the ankle, the sole, or the toe nails. The reasons are many: old age, wearing uncomfortable shoes, excessive walking, fractures, a mineral deficiency, ingrown toenails, diabetes and standing on your feet for long periods.
There are many old home remedies for dealing with foot pain. Let me mention a few:
Hot and Cold Water Therapy is a popular one. The hot water helps with blood flow while the cold treatment will reduce inflammation. It is suggested that you fill a bucket or pan with cold and another with bearable hot water. Sit in a comfortable chair, then dip your feet in the hot water for three minutes. Then do the same with the cold water for up to a minute. Repeat two or three times, ending with the cold treatment. You can also accomplish the same results using a heat pad and ice pack.

Vinegar is used in various treatments and can help with foot pain as it reduces inflammation in conditions like sprains and strains. It is recommended that you fill a tub with hot water, then add two tablespoons of vinegar. Soak your feet for about 20 minutes. You can also mix the vinegar in two containers, one with cold water and the other with hot water. Then alternate treatment. You can also soak a towel in each and wrap the foot. Leave it for about 5 minutes. You can repeat the process several times daily.

Clove oil is highly effective in fungus and also foot pain as it boosts circulation. For quick relief, gently massage your aching feet with clove oil. This will stimulate blood flow and relax your muscles. You can massage your feet and heels with clove oil several times a day. If you have sensitive skin or a cut, dilute three drops of clove oil with one teaspoon of extra virgin olive or coconut oil and then massage your feet with it.
We drink water (and lots of it) to hydrate our body and sustain the many systems within our body. However, water is also good for sustaining good health when applied outside the body. This type of therapy goes back to ancient times. Just look at all the old mineral baths that were created by the Greeks and the Romans. It wasn't just for socializing.

The Walk in Tub has an air pump that delivers thousands bubbles into the water, creating a gentle massaging action that stimulates every inch of the body. Most Walk in Tubs have air jet ports at all the critical areas to reach common places where pain might be present. As the tub is filling, you can actually turn on the air jets to massage the feet before the tub actually is filled completely. The lighter touch of the air jets is better for those who have sensitive skin or muscles.

Another option is the water jets. Again, various jet ports are located in strategic areas to reach parts of the body that typically suffer from pain. Also, these jets are adjustable and can be set both to direction and water pressure. You can literally sit in a tub in comfort while these jets massage your feet in warm water while you recline and relax.
Maybe it's time you took a look at the Walk in Tub. They are now affordable and can shipped right to your house. Installation is usually accomplished in no more than two days, without disrupting your household. Don't live with aching feet. There is help available.
