The Benefits of Foot Exercises

Did you know that the muscles of the feet make up 25% of your body’s total muscles? And just like any other muscles, those in the feet can benefit from regular exercise. Exercising can make the feet stronger, healthier, and more resistant to injury. There are many different types of foot exercises. Toe lifts, in which you slowly lift your toes one at a time until they are in the air, can help increase the strength and dexterity of your toe muscles. You can strengthen the muscles at the bottom of your feet by placing a towel on the floor and then scrunching it up with your toes. For more information about exercises for your foot health, consult with a podiatrist today.

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 Michigan Foot & Ankle Center. 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Livonia, and Southfield, MI . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
