A Tennis Ball and the Sole of the Feet

There are many people who understand the benefits of exercising their feet. One way this can be accomplished is by using a tennis ball. This is done by rolling the bottom of the foot on the tennis ball, which may be beneficial in strengthening the overall foot. When this is practiced, it can help to release tension in the feet, and specific types of foot pain may gradually diminish. Research has indicated it may have a positive effect on the brain and nervous system. There are different points of the foot that correspond to specific internal organs. Improvement and good feelings may be noticed when these parts of the foot are massaged with a tennis ball. If you would like additional information about what size tennis ball to use that can help your feet, please ask a podiatrist.

Exercising your feet regularly with the proper foot wear is a great way to prevent injuries and build strength. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Dwayne A. Lay, DPM from Elite Foot and Ankle. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Exercise for Your Feet

Exercise for your feet can help you gain strength, mobility and flexibility in your feet. They say that strengthening your feet can be just as rewarding as strengthening another part of the body. Your feet are very important, and we often forget about them in our daily tasks. But it is because of our feet that are we able to get going and do what we need to. For those of us fortunate enough to not have any foot problems, it is an important gesture to take care of them to ensure good health in the long run.

Some foot health exercises can include ankle pumps, tip-toeing, toe rises, lifting off the floor doing reps and sets, and flexing the toes. It is best to speak with Our doctor to determine an appropriate regimen for your needs. Everyone’s needs and bodies are different, and the activities required to maintain strength in the feet vary from individual to individual. 

Once you get into a routine of doing regular exercise, you may notice a difference in your feet and how strong they may become.
