When a part of your body hurts, the pain can spread. Have you ever had a pain that starts at the foot and ends up going up all the way down your leg? If so, these exercises will be of great help to you.
Why do you hurt your feet?
The origin of the pain may be due to several reasons: arthritis, onions, overlapping toes, athlete’s foot (mushrooms), parrot’s beak, corns, ingrown toenails …
The functioning of your body would be linked to your feet; Chinese reflexology says that feet are the source of your health. In addition, there are several detox foot baths, which have been created on the same idea that your feet are best able to evacuate toxins.
Exercises to relieve feet
Exercise of toes raised
This exercise is very simple. Stand on your two feet and raise all your toes at the same time. Make sure your little toe is at the same height as the big one. Repeat this stretch five times for your two feet.
Exercise of raised toes
Stretch your ankle
Tie a ball around the foot of a chair or table. Put the ball under your heel and press your toes against the ground. Repeat this exercise 15 times.
Rub your feet against a tennis ball
Place a ball under your feet (in turn) and roll it with light pressure. When you’re done, lean your foot so that your toes point to your knees and then stretch them down to the floor.
Toes and fingers
Sit with your legs outstretched in front of you, toes toward the ceiling. Lean forward and touch them with your fingers, then slowly go back.
If you have not been physically active for a while, these exercises can be difficult but do not get discouraged, you will soon take your pace.
