Compression socks are available at every drug or grocery shop, as well as online. Start with compression socks with a mercury range of 12 to 15 mm or 15 to 20 mm.
Because they come in a variety of weights and compressions, it's better to start with lighter weight socks and work your way up to the one that gives you the greatest relief.
Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily
Despite what you would think, getting enough fluids can really help you reduce swelling. When your body isn't properly hydrated, it conserves the fluid it does have. Swelling is a result of this.
Raise your feet above your heart, if possible.
When you sleep, prop your feet up on cushions, pillows, or even things like phone books. If you're pregnant and want to reduce foot swelling, try elevating your feet several times a day. Even if you're sitting on an ottoman or a chair, aim for around 20 minutes at a time.
Soak for 15 to 20 minutes in a cool Epsom salt bath.
Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) may be useful for more than just muscle aches. It also has the potential to relieve edema and inflammation. Epsom salt, according to popular belief, pulls out toxins and promotes relaxation.
Reduce salt intake
Reduced salt consumption can aid in the reduction of swelling throughout the body, especially in the feet. Choose low-sodium versions of your favorite foods and avoid adding salt to your meals.
