Foot pain is no small thing. Your feet carry the weight of your body, everywhere you go. Even more strain is put on the feet if you participate in active sports such as running, basketball, or dance. When you feel foot pain, it is important to do the proper foot exercises and stretches that will help you to recovery more quickly. Something to keep in mind is that while foot exercises and stretches will help tremendously, there are also some products that will aid you in pain prevention and recovery as well. Tuli’s® products are specifically designed to offer support and shock absorption during every day walking or vigorous physical activity. Whether you need Gaitors or Heel Cups, there is a Tuli’s® product that will aid you during your foot stretches and exercises.
Stretches for Foot Pain
At Medi-Dyne, we offer the following solutions for foot stretches:
- ProStretch™ Plus – The ProStretch™ Plus works to target the heel, the plantar fascia, and the ankle. Secure your foot into the ProStretch™. Stand at an arm’s length from a wall or from something else that you can hold onto for stability. Slowly rock the foot backward until you feel a good stretch. Hold for 30 seconds. Slowly rock the foot forward again until your toes are pointing toward the ground. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
- StretchRite® – Sitting on the ground with the leg of the injured foot outstretched in front of you, wrap the StretchRite® around the toes. Slowly pull on the handles so that the toes begin to point toward you. Hold for 30 seconds, release, and repeat 3 times.
- Foot Roll – Place a golf ball underneath your bare foot and begin to roll it around. Be sure that the ball presses against the toes, the ball, the sole, and the heels for the best results.
