Plantar Fasciitis: Flex and Stretch
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition caused by tiny tears in the band of tissue on the soles of your feet. Prevent it from happening with this easy stretch you can do at your desk.
- Sit down on a chair or bench. Bend your left leg, and place your left ankle on your right knee.
- Hold onto your left toes with your left hand, and gently press your left toes to the right, so your foot is in a pointing position. Stay here for a few seconds.
- Then use your hand to pull your left toes to the left, flexing your foot.
- Repeat this stretch 10 times, and then do it with the other foot. Complete this stretch at least three times a day to experience the full benefits.
