Popular Foot Massages

The feet bear the weight of the body, and many people choose to get routine foot massages as a form of foot therapy.  Foot massages may help to improve circulation, reduce stress, and relax the muscles in the body. There are various types of foot massages that can be performed. A Swedish foot massage is considered to be the most common form of massage and is done by performing circular motions and long strokes which may help to energize the feet. Some people may choose to have a reflexology foot massage done, and this may be helpful in relieving pain in different areas of the body. Forceful strokes that target the deeper muscles can be referred to as a deep tissue massage and may be beneficial for people who have endured injuries. If you are interested in learning more about this type of foot therapy, it is suggested that you speak with a podiatrist who can provide you with useful information.

Foot therapy is often necessary for those recovering from either foot deformities or foot injuries. If you have concerns regarding therapy, consult with one of our podiatrists from Total Podiatry. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Most Common Injuries

People who are active or athletes are prone to a variety of injuries. Therefore, it is often important to take part in physical therapy in order to quickly get back on the right track. 

What to Do When Injured

Physical Therapy – This specialized treatment will focus on the affected area, speeding up recovery and the overall healing process. It is a proven method that has helped millions of people return from any injury.

During physical therapy you will undergo regimented training to get back into full form. Training is often very difficult, especially at first when the foot feels weak. Physical therapy often involves:

Basic stretching and twisting exercises – getting the feet’s mobility and flexibility up.

Massaging – the therapist will massage the injured area in order to activate the muscles and relax them.

Strengthening Exercises – this allows the muscles in the affected area to regain their full strength, a vital step towards full recovery.
