Exercises for Drop Foot

Drop foot is a foot condition that can develop in individuals when they experience some degree of difficulty in lifting the front of their foot. Drop foot often occurs due to nerve damage or after a stroke. There are many different exercises that you may consider practicing if you are someone that is currently struggling with drop foot. For example, a patient could potentially benefit from calf stretches because calf muscles may tighten due to drop foot. Additionally, a patient could combat their drop foot by performing balance-enhancing exercises. If you are living with drop foot, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist who can help you address any foot concerns you may be having.

Exercising your feet regularly with the proper foot wear is a great way to prevent injuries and build strength. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Jeffrey Rosenblatt, DPM from New York. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Exercise for Your Feet

Exercise for your feet can help you gain strength, mobility and flexibility in your feet. They say that strengthening your feet can be just as rewarding as strengthening another part of the body. Your feet are very important, and we often forget about them in our daily tasks. But it is because of our feet that are we able to get going and do what we need to. For those of us fortunate enough to not have any foot problems, it is an important gesture to take care of them to ensure good health in the long run.

Some foot health exercises can include ankle pumps, tip-toeing, toe rises, lifting off the floor doing reps and sets, and flexing the toes. It is best to speak with Our doctor to determine an appropriate regimen for your needs. Everyone’s needs and bodies are different, and the activities required to maintain strength in the feet vary from individual to individual. 

Once you get into a routine of doing regular exercise, you may notice a difference in your feet and how strong they may become.
