foot exerciseResearch conducted by a University of Queensland PhD student proved that the plantar fascia is not exactly alone when it comes to giving arch support to the feet. Actually, a number of muscles are activated to assist the foot’s arch, as two experiments conducted in the study came to show.

The first experiment entailed weighing down subjects’ knees with weights and observing how the muscles in their feet reacted. The second experiment involved electrically stimulating these tissues. The researchers learned that the arch rose with the weight, which suggested the muscles activated in order to provide support. The scientists involved hope this research will have impact the practice of foot rehabilitation, with an emphasis on muscle strengthening.

It is wise to keep the feet active and healthy. For advice on how to exercise the feet, feel free to get in contact with podiatrist Dr. Greg Khaimov of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov can measure your feet while providing advice on keeping the feet healthy.

Stretching ExercisesMany people often experience pain in their feet from time to time. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, there are a few simple exercises that may help alleviate some of the pain experienced.

Another exercise involves rolling your foot over a golf or tennis ball to help stimulate the nerves. These exercises are great for anyone who is on their feet all day or heavily involved in physical activity.

Stretching exercises are necessary to reduce the chance of injuring your feet while exercising. If you have concerns about physical activity and the health of your feet, contact a podiatrist like Dr. Greg Khaimov of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC.

Giving Your Feet the Stretch It Needs

Foot pain is very common for people. Our feet carry the entire weight of the human body all day and can be easily strained from overexertion. The feet can receive cramping which can be from any number causes. Pain in the feet can be alleviated without medication and or doctor visits.

How stretching helps:

Stretching relaxes the feet and eases pain whenever performed. It is important to perform stretching slowly and gradually with no force. Stretching should only be held for several seconds, and then relaxed.

Tips to Perfuming the Perfect Stretch:   

Sit and cross one leg over the other by pulling the toes carefully back without overextending. Start by resting the left ankle on the right knee. With the left hand, gently flex the left foot by pulling back on the toes. Do not pull too hard, just hard enough to feel the stretch in the arch of the foot. Then point the toes of the left foot as far as you can. Rotate the motion of pointing with pulling back on the toes.

The stretch should be performed 10 to 20 times, bring immediate relief. Repeat the whole process with the other leg.
