Exercises for your Toes
Exercising our toes is important, just as important as exercising our feet. Our toes take a lot of abuse and doing a few simple exercises can help you to strengthen your toes and prevent foot discomfort.
Here are a few exercises you can try for your toes:
- Toe pulls. Put a thick rubber band around your all of your toes and then spread them out. Hold this position for five seconds. Repeat 10 times.
- Towel curls (recommended for people with hammertoes, bunions, and toe cramps). Put a small towel on the floor. Curl it toward you using only your toes. You can increase resistance by putting a weight on the end of the towel. Relax and repeat the exercise five times.
- Golf ball roll (recommended for people with plantar fasciitis, foot cramps, or arch strain). Roll a golf ball under the ball of your foot for about two minutes. It is a great massage for the bottom of the foot.
- Toe squeeze (recommended for people with hammertoes and cramps). Put a small cylindrical object between your toes and hold and squeeze for five seconds. Repeat 10 times.
