Is Ice or Heat Better for Eliminating Foot Pain?

Placing an icepack on the painful area for 20 minute intervals will help reduce swelling in that area. The easiest way to do this, if there are multiple areas on your foot that are hurting, is to freeze a plastic water bottle full of water and then proceed to roll your foot across it.
