Can Stretches Help to Relieve Foot Pain?

Tuesday, 22 September 2020 00:00

The common areas for foot pain to occur is the arch, the plantar fascia, and the forefoot. Foot pain may originate from the calf muscles or a tight Achilles tendon, and there are several methods that can be implemented that may help to loosen muscles in this area. Many patients find that when they roll a golf ball or rolling pin under the sole of their foot, their pain is relieved. This can be beneficial in releasing tension in the feet. The arch can gain strength by keeping the feet flat on the floor, and lifting the foot while making sure the big toe remains on the ground. Additionally, the overall foot may benefit when towel curls are performed, and this is practiced by scrunching a towel placed on the floor and picking it up with the toes. If you would like more information about stretches that can be performed for specific foot pain, please consult with a podiatrist.
