Icing the affected foot tends to reduce inflammation at a faster rate. There are several ways you could go about it. Traditional ice packs would be suitable though more targeted icing can be achieved using a plastic water bottle. Filing it with water and freezing it makes for an iced cylinder. When you place it under the foot, it is shaped perfectly for effective reduction in swelling. You should use an ice pack three to five times a day for as long as half an hour. Icing the affected foot after active usage such as walking or running is helpful.
