If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, bunions, ankle sprains or Achilles tendonitis, here are some effective foot exercises to help increase functionality and stability in the area. They aim to work on the intrinsic muscles of the foot. Here, Bethesda-based Point Performance’s Chris Ricardo demonstrates.
Arch lift or doming of your arch. Carefully lift the arch of your foot by squeezing the toes and lifting, then return to normal.
Toe yoga. This also helps with coordination of the intrinsic foot muscles. Pick up the big toe and then the other toes by alternating. Keep balls of the feet down and heel down.
