I’ve given out this exercise 3 times recently to people who asked me about pain in their foot. Two of those people have confirmed that it fixed the pain, I’m awaiting feedback from the 3rd person. So I thought I should put it on my blog for all the world to see. Here’s the exercise……..
Ignore the person on the floor and the mobilization band wrapped around the heel. Get a chair and do this movement. Bend your knee up on the chair and lean forward. If there’s a pinching sensation at the front of the ankle, that’s ok, you actually kinda want that. Try to lean into it a little bit, then back off and do it again at least 10 times every 2 hours. That pinching should go away in time as should the pain in your foot. Not examining/evaluating your foot makes giving out this exercise kinda risky BUT I’ve seen it help a lot of people. So disclaimer: don’t do this. If pain gets worse, stop.
