Exercise and Stronger Feet

Exercising the feet regularly is a good way to keep them healthy and strong.  An effective toe stretch is done by sitting in a chair with the feet on the floor. Raising the heels while keeping the toes on the floor, followed by reversing the order can be successful in stretching the feet. Each position can be repeated several times until a good stretch is felt. A toe splay is done when the heels remain on the floor with the toes spread apart. This can be repeated up to ten times. The sole can be strengthened by crossing one leg over the opposite knee and pulling the toes back toward the shin. There are numerous stretches and foot exercises that are easy to perform. If you would like additional information about exercising your feet, it is suggested that you confer with a podiatrist who can guide you in having stronger feet.

Exercising your feet regularly with the proper foot wear is a great way to prevent injuries and build strength. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact one of our podiatrists from Quad Cities Foot and Ankle Associates. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Exercise for Your Feet

Exercise for your feet can help you gain strength, mobility and flexibility in your feet. They say that strengthening your feet can be just as rewarding as strengthening another part of the body. Your feet are very important, and we often forget about them in our daily tasks. But it is because of our feet that are we able to get going and do what we need to. For those of us fortunate enough to not have any foot problems, it is an important gesture to take care of them to ensure good health in the long run.

Some foot health exercises can include ankle pumps, tip-toeing, toe rises, lifting off the floor doing reps and sets, and flexing the toes. It is best to speak with Our doctors to determine an appropriate regimen for your needs. Everyone’s needs and bodies are different, and the activities required to maintain strength in the feet vary from individual to individual. 

Once you get into a routine of doing regular exercise, you may notice a difference in your feet and how strong they may become.
