Hi folks and welcome back to our channel! Did you know that you spend up to 80 percent
of your waking hours on your feet, and each day your feet absorb over 2 million kilograms
of accumulated pressure? So it’s no wonder that, from time to time,
your feet end up in a world of hurt. It may be especially bad on days you put extra
strain on your feet by hiking, running and jumping. Other causes of tired legs and feet can be
Abnormal foot anatomy, Obesity, poorly fitting footwear and overuse. Besides kicking back and giving your feet
a rest, there are certain remedies that you can try to ease and soothe your tired legs
and feet. In today’s video we will tell you what these
remedies are. From soaking your feet to massaging them,
stay tuned to find out more! Wear Compression Socks: Compression socks
are designed to add pressure to your legs and feet in order to maintain blood flow and
reduce any swelling or discomfort. Doctors often recommend them if you have varicose
veins or a condition that causes poor blood flow, but they’re also great for anyone
going on a long flight or whose feet hurt from walking all day. Although they may feel a bit tight at times
and you may want to pull them off, they are good to have on. They can be great for you if you don’t move
around much, sleep through flight, have high blood pressure or leg swelling. Compression socks also act as a great recovery
socks. If you wear them during your runs and long
hikes, and then take them off after, your legs will feel great and at ease. You can buy good quality compression socks
online or at your local supermarket. Use a Cold Pad: It is possible for you to
use a cold pad to relieve tired legs or pain. The cold pad will reduce the muscle pains
or any sharp pains in your feet. In case your legs are swollen from standing
or sitting all day, it is also possible to reduce numbness in your feet by using cold
therapy. Just wrap some ice cubes in a towel and place
this cold pack on the affected area. Try Elevating your legs: Leg elevation is
a great way to ease tired legs and feet. Make sure that you place your legs in a higher
position. Leg elevation works because it increases the
flow of blood to your feet. Sometimes your feet might ache and go numb
because the blood does not flow to the legs. When trying elevation, choose a wedge pillow. Wedge pillows are the best because they keep
you comfortable and you do not feel like you are straining your legs. Rub Out the Pain: In health-food stores, you
can buy a roller specially designed to massage the soles of the feet. Or you can simply roll your bare foot over
a tennis ball, golf ball, or rolling pin for several minutes. You can also massage them by hand with one
of the following two homemade oils: 3 drops clove oil and 3 tablespoons sesame oil or
3 drops lavender oil, 1 drop chamomile oil and 1 drop geranium oil mixed in 2 teaspoons
of olive oil. Try a Foot Bath: Sometimes achy feet are simply
the result of your overstressed muscles and connective tissue due to excess activity or
weight-bearing. One of the best remedies for relaxing sore
muscles is a foot bath. Soak your feet in a basin of warm water or a store-bought
foot spa for five to 10 minutes. Try adding Epsom salts to the water for an
added soothing effect. Epsom salts are readily available where first
aid products are sold. Use approximately 1 to 2 tablespoons per gallon
of warm water. If your feet are swollen, hot, or tired, use
cool water instead of warm and elevate your feet for a half hour or more after the soak. Wear The Correct Shoes: Identify which shoes
may be contributing to your foot soreness. Switching to running shoes or shoes with a
stiffer sole may help. Even sandals come in styles that cradle the
arch and have a slightly thicker sole, which is preferable. Also, if your shoes have excess wear and tear
they may be contributing to your sore feet. Worn-out soles can change the dynamics of
how your feet hit the ground, thus throwing off your biomechanics. Since shoes that are too tight or too loose
can lead to soreness and fatigue, have your feet measured the next time you buy shoes. You may be surprised to find out that you
were wearing an incorrect shoe size. If you have bunions, hammertoes, or a neuroma
which is a painful thickening of the tissue around a nerve, make sure your shoes are wide
enough and deep enough in the toe box. Give Your feet a workout: This may seem ironic
but working out your feet can in fact help you soothe tired legs. Try wrapping a thick rubber band around all
the toes on one foot. Spread your toes and hold the stretch for
five seconds. Repeat ten times to relieve cramped, shoe
bound feet. You can also scatter a few pencils on the
floor, and pick them up with your toes. This little exercise helps relieve foot ache. Use Chili Oil: Chili oil, a popular condiment
present in your pantry, can help in healing the aching tired legs. Capsaicin the main ingredient of hot chili
oil that is responsible for its hotness and helps in blocking transmission of the pain
signals, thereby providing fast relief from leg pain. Furthermore, it stimulates blood circulation. To treat your tired legs, simply massage your
legs with chili oil and feel the pain melt away. Get a Foot Massage: If you have tired legs
that are partially caused by tight, sore or stiff muscles and is not a sports injury,
a massage can help ease the tiredness. Directly, massages help inhibit the inflammatory
response and promote cellular healing. Indirectly, they also release pain-fighting
endorphins, which may explain why some individuals find that getting a massage helps relieve
aching legs that are caused by factors beyond just sore muscles, such as vascular or neurological
factors. You can try massaging your legs yourself or
schedule an appointment with a professional masseuse. Try Essential Oils: Essential Oils like Eucalyptus
oil, Clove oil and Peppermint oil have pain relieving and anti inflammatory compounds
which can be very helpful for tired legs and feet. Just add 3-4 drops of Eucalyptus Oil, 2 drops
of Olive Oil and 2 drops of Peppermint oil to a bucket of hot water. Soak your legs and feet in this water for
about 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water once you’re done. Repeat this twice or three times a week and
your feet and legs will start feeling better for sure. Try Deep Heat: Deep heat can be an effective
way to soothe your tired legs and feet because the heat from hot water helps to relax the
tired muscles in your legs and alleviate the pain. It also increases blood flow to the area it
is applied to. Dip a towel in hot water and squeeze the excess
water carefully. Place this towel on your tired legs until
it reaches room temperature. Repeat once more. If you have a heating pad or a hot water bottle
at home, you can use that as well. Use this remedy as required for best results. Stretch Your Legs: Stretching can be a key
to keeping your legs feeling happy and pain-free. Tight hip flexors will alter the tilt of your
pelvis which is a nightmare when it comes to lower limb and lumbar issues as it can
cause a lot of aching and discomfort. To get started, a really simple hip flexor
stretch is to bend your right knee while standing, and hold your ankle from behind. Bring your heel towards your backside as far
as you can, and feel the stretch across the front of your thigh. Just make sure you don’t bend at the hips
and make it too easy! Dry Brush Your Legs: Dry Brushing your legs
can stimulate circulation in them if they are tired. Try to use a brush with soft bristles. Start brushing from your feet and move upwards
to the thighs. Brush in the upwards direction towards the
heart. Dry brushing the legs for 10 to 15 minutes
helps in reducing the symptoms of tired legs. Ditch the Extra Salt: Did you know in some
instances, modifying your diet can help with leg pain? Diets low in potassium, calcium or magnesium
have been shown to lead to muscle cramps. Try to include foods like sweet potatoes,
squash and broccoli which are full of potassium, yogurt, sardines, lentils and cheese for calcium
and spinach, quinoa and tofu for magnesium. If your salt intake is high thanks to processed
foods and added salt, aim to lower it. Along with muscle and leg pain, it can lead
to dehydration and raised blood pressure as well. Give these remedies a try, the next time you
have tired legs and feet and let us know how that worked out for you in the comments section
