Foot and Ankle Stabilization Exercises

Wearing shoes prevents normal joint movement and muscle contraction in the foot and lower leg...eventually creating gait problems that involve the entire body. The feet are the foundation of the spine and this is the reason I check everyone's feet for problems. This quick video is an instructional for those who I have recommended these specific exercises. If you have foot problems, please be sure to have a thourough evaluation of the condition before trying these exercises on your own.  Some conditions could be made worse by exercising these muscles. Each exercise is to be performed 10 to 20 times once a day for optimal performance. Happy feet for a happy life! Dr. Doreo
