Foot is in Pain. Yuck! (Update)

27 Mar

Back in January, my left foot hurts. I have been using the P.R.I.C.E. (protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation) recovery method. It is feeling a lot better now and I feel the strength is coming back in my foot. Not fully though, I am only referring to the strength that allow me to jump and run a little bit.

I still feel some tension and soreness in the muscles of the foot especially after an intensive work out.  So I use a tennis ball to relieve the tension in my sore foot. I push my foot into the tennis ball until I feel a light pressure. I keep rolling until I feel the muscular tightness is decreasing.  I also use sports tape to supports my sore and injured muscles on my foot during excerise.  Apparently I find KT Tape is the best sport tape comparing those compression bands or wraps.  It is not slippery and easy to apply. No more ‘mummy-like’ taping and that is awesome.

This is a long road of recovery and I do not like it at all.  This rehabilitation is a such a pain in the ass. Sign!
