10. Treatment

Because the feet must support the entire body, even a minor injury can quickly worsen. It is important to not overwork the foot during the recovery process. Physical therapy can help with peripheral neuropathy or extensor tendonitis. Casts and walking boots can assist with sprains and fractures. To combat the pain and inflammation, doctors recommend nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. For home treatment, rest the affected foot, and ice it for 20 minutes at a time.
