I spent the week recovering from my foot injury. Based on recommendations this is what I did:
- Rest: No running
- Ice: Icing the foot for 20 minutes at a time
- Compression: Picked up an ankle compression sleeve from Walgreens
- Elevation: Portion of each evening with foot on a cushion
In addition I ordered a stability disk from Amazon :Isokinetics Deluxe Balance Board. I also went to Marathon Sports in Melrose and it was their analysis that my Brooks shoe had too much structure for my feet. They put me in a Saucony shoe that I absolutely love. I feel no pain when walking in it.
My foot is feel is feeling much better 7 days after I injured it.
