If you feel any foot pain, it’s important to determine the cause and the proper foot care steps. Many times we take our feet for granted, but using proper foot care leads to good foot health which supports whole-body wellness.
Foot Care Tips:
With feet flat, lift and spread your toes. Repeat 10 times.
Now curl your toes under as though you were raking leaves with them. Repeat 10 times.
Stand on a hard surface with your toes on the edge of a hand towel. Gather the towel under the arch of your foot with your toes.
Lift your big toe, keeping the littlest toe down flat. Repeat 10 times.
Reverse the previous exercise and lift your little toe, leaving the big toe down. Repeat 10 times.
To stretch, sit on the edge of a chair with a firm seat. Bring your foot onto the opposite knee and pull all the toes down with your hand until you feel a gentle stretch. Then push the toes up.
Stand or sit on the edge of a chair. Press into your toes, lifting the heel until you feel a stretch in the arch of the foot.
Put the tops of your toes on the ground and gently press forward until you feel a stretch in the top of the foot.
Not only are our toe socks great for various fitness activities like Yoga, Pilates, and running, they can also be considered foot care products, especially for diabetes patients.
