According to Lizzie Fuhr of Popsugar Fitness, when the feet endure excessive amounts of stress being put on them, tissues can tear causing swelling and irritation. Fuhr suggests a firm routine of stretching exercises will relieve stress especially around the plantar fascia.   

Although it is important to get adequate exercisefor your feet and ankles, you should be aware of proper exercise techniques before you embark on a new program. A podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay can provide exercise recommendations that allow you to gain strength in your feet and ankles while avoiding foot pain or foot injuries.

Exercise for Your Feet

Exercise for your feet can help you to 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 often we 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 not to have any foot problems, it is an important gesture to take care of them to ensure its good health in the long run.

Some foot health exercises can include ankle pumps, tip-toeing, toe rise, lifting off the floor doing reps and sets, also flexing the toes and involving the shins may help too. It is best to speak with your doctor regarding how to do these fitness steps and how often is right for you. Everyone’s needs and bodies are different and it varies from individual to individual to determine what should be done for you to maintain strength in your feet.

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