SIMPLE WAYS YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF?

Dr. Forman and his professional Scottsdale team at Put Your Feet First strongly encourage their patients to begin doing simple exercises at home to help their joints.

These remedies include:
  • Interchanging heat and ice every 15 minutes. The heat relaxes the muscle and the ice numbs it, relieving some of your symptoms.
  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication can be taken to relieve pain.
  • Controlling weight, as the more pressure placed on the foot and ankle, the stronger the pain is felt.
  • Using a cane or walker to help support you.

These suggestions are a temporary relief until a visit can be scheduled. At Put Your Feet First, we can further help you with a myriad of solutions. Examples include:

  • Custom-made orthotics.
  • Providing supportive braces and footwear suggestions.
  • Prescription topical and oral anti-inflammatory medications.
