or simply to get a hot shower because you need to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing a bit. Some people also get hot foot baths to make their blood flow in the foot specifically.
If you can’t walk much, I think it would also be wise to carefully make your foot move while you’re lying down. It doesn’t matter much if you’re only hurting a few days but not making your foot move and bend in every direction for weeks on end can cause damage which won’t heal fast.

Hi @gavin, I can definitely vouch on that statement. Try a foot bath and some Epsom salt. That was like striking a gold mine solution with regards to the pain. The pain subsided soon after and to be honest I think my foot healed a little quicker as a result.
