What I've found is compression socks for after runs/soccer, and alternating hot/cold water.

Over to jacuzzi until warm again, several minutes of leg stretches, then another plunge into the cold water for 3 minutes.
Yes, the foot surgery was really helpful. I hurt my foot playing indoor soccer (combination of hard surface, not a lot of cushion in the shoes and being overweight <<that is the kicker). It did take almost a full year to fully recover and if I had to do it again, I would do it sooner and get the pain over with sooner.
