Healthy Feet Begins with…Stretching!

August 28, 2020

FACT: A person will walk an estimated 150,000 miles in their lifetime, roughly the equivalent of walking around the world six times, according to the American College of Podiatry. That stress takes its toll and puts your feet at risk for injuries or inflammation, so it’s important to keep them healthy.

At the office of Princeton Regional Foot and Ankle Associates, our team of skilled professionals is ready to go the distance for you. Count on us to deliver superior foot care, as we skillfully address and treat a wide range of problems in order to relieve pain and restore better foot health.

Exercising has become an important part of life, and stretching is central for any exercise or rehabilitation program. The “warm up” keeps muscles flexible, healthy, and strong to maintain a range of motion in your joints. Otherwise, they shorten and tighten so that one wrong move can spell trouble. Flexibility can be the difference between an active or inactive lifestyle, improving circulation and increasing blood flow to your muscles. Good posture keeps your muscles loose, thus avoiding pain and falls as you age.

Stretching for healthy feet:

  • Focus on muscle groups: feet, calves, back, shoulders.
  • Do calf and heel stretches.
  • Hold stretches for 30 seconds; relax and breathe deeply.
  • If it hurts, stop.
  • Make this a daily routine.

At the office of Princeton Regional Foot and Ankle Associates, your feet are our top priority. We’ll provide the highest quality care for a wide spectrum of foot conditions and educate you on things you can do at home to keep your feet in tip-top shape.  To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, give us a call today.
