Did you know that you can relieve back, hip, and knee pain only through your feet? Don’t be shocked, it’s true and we’re going to teach you how to do it. These incredible exercises work like magic and will help you get rid of the pain in just minutes.
Here are the 5-foot exercises that will help you relieve the pain and improve your posture and balance:
1. Toe walking
Stand on your tiptoes and walk on them for 20 seconds to strengthen the muscles and ligaments in your feet. Repeat the exercise 5 times with some rest. If your balance isn’t perfect, hold onto some surface to prevent any injury.
2. Toe Presses
Stand up, slightly bend your knees and grip the floor with your toes. Hold this position for 3 seconds and release. Repeat 10 times, 3 times a day to keep your toes young and strong.
3. Ankle Circles
Knee, ankle, and hip pain is caused by bad posture when your upper body isn’t aligned with your lower body. This exercise will help you eliminate pain in those areas.
Lie down flat on your back. Bent your legs upwards. Grab one leg and stretch it above your body, rotate your ankle clockwise and anticlockwise for 10 seconds. Change the leg and do the same exercise with the other one. Repeat the exercise two times a day.
4. Resistance band
This exercise will help strengthen even the smallest muscles in your feet and will help you walk without any pain.
For this exercise, you’ll need a band. Sit on the floor, straighten your legs in front of you and wrap the band on top of your feet, the other end of the band wrap it on a chair or bedpost. Slide back while sitting until you feel tension. Flex the feet backward and hold to 5. Release and do 10 reps.
5. Toe-pencil pick up
For this exercise, you’ll need to pick a pencil with your toes and hold it for 10 seconds. Do 5 reps with each foot.
