Hi Suzanne, Welcome aboard!

Read Scott's pf book at the front of this site. Very good info. Also, take advantage of the key word search feature at the top of the page, it's a real doozie, and will find everything for you in a snap. A good example would be to do a search the word icing. That will you get a lot of information for immediate use, while you wait for others to post anwers to your specic questions.

Off hand, I think you should ice when you can, and/or if it hurts, and no more than 10 minutes at a time or you may actually reverse the benefits. A rule that comes to mind is 10 minutes on, 20 minutes off. By using the search, you'll find a lot of ideas about icepacks and frozen ice bottles that you can roll under your feet.

I wonder though, in your rolly chair approach, be aware of the pressure you may be puttin on certian areas of your foot/feet, careful not to create new problems.

Good luck, feel better soon.
