How to Start Reducing Ankle Pain Today

Ankle pain is something almost everyone deals with at some point in their lifetime. Sprains, tendonitis, arthritis and other injuries can make even the simplest actions, such as walking, especially painful. The problem with ankle injuries is that healing can sometimes require crutches, bed-rest or at least a temporary reduction in the amount of time spent standing, walking, jogging or running until the ankle can properly heal.

Ankle pain can occur with an accident or injury, or it can develop over time due to repetitive stress and poor posture. Whatever the cause of your ankle pain, follow the tips below to say goodbye to ankle pain forever.

Prevent Ankle Pain

Many types of ankle pain are the direct result of calf and Achilles tendon inflexibility. To increase the range of motion in your ankle, sit on the ground with your legs straight out in front of you and stretch the ankle by pulling your big toe towards your body until you feel a nice stretch in your calf. Hold this position for 10-15 seconds, then release. Switch ankles and repeat the exercise. Perform 3-5 repetitions on each ankle daily.

Pain in the ankle can often originate in the sole of the foot. Knots can develop due to repetitive stress or wearing shoes that do not properly fit your feet. To alleviate tension in the sole of the foot, place a golf ball on the floor, put one foot on the ball, and place as much weight on the ball as you can without making it too painful. Begin moving your foot in a circular motion for 20-30 seconds. Switch feet and repeat this exercise. Perform this exercise 3-5 times per week.

Seek a Medical Professional

Sometimes ankle injuries can only heal through surgery or extensive rehab. If pain in your ankle is persistent or becomes too much for you to manage, seek help from your primary care physician or a licensed physical therapist. Your primary care physician may refer you to an ankle specialist who can make you special support braces, develop a rehab protocol and teach you specialized stretches and exercises to heal your specific injury.

Ankle pain often stems from inflammation. Stretching and other treatment options don't always soothe these aches and pains, but Relief Factor can help.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
