Exercises to Strengthen Your Feet
The way that the foot interacts with the ground influences how the entire body functions. Although most people have weak feet, it is not impossible to strengthen them with exercise. One simple exercise that will help strengthen your feet is “toe spreading”. In order to do this exercise, spread your toes wide along the floor and try to space them out evenly. Close your toes again, and repeat this exercise ten times. Additionally, you should also make sure you are positioning your foot correctly when you are working out. For example, when doing lunges, you should always evenly distribute the weight you are putting on your front foot.
Exercising your feet regularly with the proper foot wear is a great way to prevent injuries. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Dr. Robert J. Kaplan of Twin Rivers Podiatry Easton. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep your pain free and on your feet.
