Foot pain reflexology (using a coat-hanger) taught me a lot about dealing with (fixing) foot pain of weird origins.
During a 1.5 hour CompuTrainer (bike) ride this morning, following a tough weight workout (legs and hips), I had a superficial, burning pain in the distal (near my toes) end of area 4 on the map, above. That would be area 7, in my ‘neurostimulator reflexology’ map.
So! What’s to do?
- Rush to the doctor for a cortisone injection? Nope!
- Pay a bunch of money to a Podiatrist or Sports Medicine Physician? Nope!
- Acupuncture? Taping? Shoe inserts? Orthotics? Prayer? Nope!
Push my pelvis gently into the region of my right hip rotators and gluts (butt muscles), to stretch them a little.
The pain faded away in less than a minute!
Thank goodness for foot pain reflexology!
- More hip stretching and tennis ball work AND,
- Strengthening – BOTH sides.
Hell! I was holding 230 watts, when it happened, and I’m almost geriatric.
What does one expect?
I love learning this stuff, and it’s FREE once you know how to do it.
Wishing you happy feet and happy trails,
