FEET EXERCISES FOR SENIORS // SIMPLE FEET EXERCISES

When it comes to exercising our feet, unless we have pain in our feet or undertake in a hobby or sport which requires we do exercises, they’re not usually a part of the body we think about exercising.

When we exercise our feet we can keep them healthy, keep them strong, keep ourselves moving much better AND also decrease pain.

In this video I cover two tips to keep your feet functioning like they should AND we go through a foot exercise routine!

    Question:
    The two toes next to my big toe in my left foot only are bent at the'knuckle' .
    This is the lef that has the most arthritic knee!
    Are the exercises you have given good for this or do I need to do something else.
    I have been pulling and stretching them with my fingers, pushing the ' knuckles down!

    Great!
    Feet are so important.
    I have always had to wear good shoes!
    Now that I am a senior, I have special insoles prepared by an Orthopedic Dr.
    They really make an amazing difference!

    I like these exercises but do I don't think I can do them… I have what is known a "Dropfoot" and I can not move my foot independently but I was wondering if you might have an answer or remedy for that, I fell on my glute and it affected the foot on the side that I fell on… TIA, Chiquito…
