Strengthening Your Feet
Strengthening Your Feet Like the rest of our body our foot needs regular exercise for muscle strengthening, however, most people overlook this important part of their body. Foot exercise is taken for granted until pain or problems arise. It is important that we start taking care of our feet through regular foot exercises for muscle strengthening before problems arise and treat the existing problems with proper foot therapy products before they limit the mobility of our body to perform our everyday activities. Here are some ways to strengthen your foot muscles:
- Walking barefoot: Walking barefoot is one of the simplest ways to strengthen your foot muscles. Walking with shoes makes our foot sole soft and week. Walking barefoot results in better blood circulation which not only leads to strengthening of muscles but also helps in reducing knee and back pain.
- Massage: Regular foot massage, where you apply strong pressure on the arch, can help significantly lessen the pain of plantar fasciitis and help in building foot muscle strength. Foot massage has a relaxing effect on our body and helps in promoting psychological as well as physical health.
- Stretching: Stretching your toes, trying to grip lightweight objects with them, raising your calf and balancing on your toes help to stretching the muscles of your feet. Stretching is the most beneficial way to strengthen your foot muscles that will help your feet stay in great shape.
