Warm Soaking For Sore Feet?

Good afternoon doctor. My husband is 55 years old working as a bus driver, always complaining of achy feet and once in a while I make a warm water bath with salt for his feet. Today my husband complains that his leg hurts again and in soaking water other than salt I put the garlic that has been I hit (not destroyed). What I want to ask, is it true that the actions I made and the appropriate immersion water to overcome the complaints of my husband’s feet? Thank you doctor.

 Leg aches are a sign that there is a problem in the muscles making up the foot. This can occur due to:
 1. Stand or sit long.
 2. Exercising without warming up.
 3. Lifting heavy loads.
 4. Dehydration and electrolyte disturbances.
 5. And others.
 Here are some things that can be done to alleviate complaints, namely:
 1. Rest your legs in a straight and elevated position (prop on pillows) over the head position.
 2. Give a gentle massage at the same time applying pain medication.
 3. Soak feet with warm water that is given half a spoon of salt (especially salt containing magnesium sulfate).
 4. Take over-the-counter pain relievers.
 If the complaint is getting annoying or if accompanied by fever, swelling, redness, pale or cold feet, immediately consult a specialist in internal medicine. In order to do a thorough examination to find out the cause. Because, achy feet can also be a symptom of a disease that requires medical treatment, such as neuropathy, arthritis, Achilles tendinitis, arterial claudication, varicose veins and others.
 Thus hopefully useful.
