Exercises for Foot Rehabilitation
At Kintec, we want to keep you active on your feet for life. However, we have found that foot soreness is often related to inactive foot muscles that can hinder your ability to remain active and enjoy your days to the fullest.
That’s why we’ve created a list of exercises, that typically take 10 to 20 minutes to complete, to help promote activation and rehabilitation of the small muscles within the foot and lower leg. These physiotherapy derived exercises have been tested in clinical research and are proven to help individuals with heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis, including workers who stand for long periods of time.
