How to Treat Achy Arches

Make Your Feet Happy With an Icy Water Bottle

If you've ever suffered from pain in your arches, here's a little treat for your feet. It's simple to do, but feels so good, and is sure to bring some relief whether you're in high heels all day or just went on a long run.

Just fill a reusable water bottle halfway with ice cubes. Then fill the bottle with cold water. Place the bottle on a towel to collect condensation, and place the arch of your bare foot on the middle of the bottle. Rock your foot forward and back, rolling the bottle underneath. Apply as much pressure as you want, and continue this for a few minutes.

Another way to ease achy arches is to stretch your feet and calves every day, especially after a run. I like to do toe breaker and the wall calf stretch.

After coming in from a walk in 2-degree weather, this does not exactly sound appealing right about now. I could see it being a lot nicer if my feet were sore, though.
