Many people have foot pain. The pain can come from specific foot problems and many patients seek effective relief methods. Exercising the feet may help to improve overall strength as well as be beneficial in preventing certain foot conditions. Many foot exercises and stretches can help to eliminate existing pain when performed correctly. It is helpful for stretches to be held for several seconds. Patients may experience pain while exercising and it is helpful to gauge this by rating it between one and ten. The repetitions of any exercise in which the number is over five may have to be temporarily reduced so the body can adapt to it. Exercise is beneficial for the feet as well as the entire body and a podiatrist can guide you toward choosing the foot exercises that are best for you.
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 the foot specialists from NYC Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
