We’re probably all aware that our bones are connected with each other, and that pain in one area of our body can easily lead to problems elsewhere. For example, the pain in our feet can actually originate in your leg. Of course, there are many causes of foot pain, and to be on the safe side, it’s always best to seek medical advice. But there are also some simple but effective exercises you can try at home. Sure, these might not be the most enjoyable exercises, but if you spend a few minutes a few times a week, your feet will be much happier. Here are 5 effective exercises to cure foot pain in minutes.
1. Heel raises
The calf muscles and ligaments near the heel are incredibly important to the health of your feet. Stand on a step with your heels hanging off of a step. Then raise and lower your heels. Repeat 10 times two or times a week.
2. Arch stretches
This exercise can enhance your feet’s range of movement and it can also counter pain in your arches. The easiest way to do this exercise is sit down in a chair and put one of your feet on your knee. Grab hold of your toes and pull them gently up and back. This movement stretches the tendon and muscle tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Try to hold this position for 10 seconds and repeat on each foot 10 times.
