Foot pronation is a natural and essential movement that occurs when you walk or run. It refers to the inward rolling motion of your foot as it makes contact with the ground. This movement helps absorb shock, distribute weight, and adapt to different surfaces, ensuring optimal stability and comfort. Understanding your unique pronation pattern is crucial for selecting the right footwear and preventing potential discomfort or injury. 👟🚶‍♀️🏃‍♂️ #FootPronation #HealthyStride #FootCareTips Foot Injury, Toe Injuries, Foot Arches, Feet Care, Stability, Discomfort, Injury, Turf Toe, Stride

Lindsey Jones | Doctor of Physical Therapy on Instagram: "If you’re suffering from pain along the bottom of the foot, you could be suffering from plantar fasciitis.  

The plantar fascia is a piece of connective tissue that connects the heel to the toes. It supports the arch of the foot and helps absorb shock during weight bearing activities such as walking.

When the plantar fascia becomes irritated, it can cause pain along the arch of the foot. This is generally worse first thing in the morning after the foot has been in a resting position with the toes pointing down, which is made worse by the weight of the covers. Injury to the plantar fascia can cause pain with standing, walking, running, stairs, or any weight bearing activity.

Exercise number 1: assisted drop ins. This is a great move for building up your feet. First of all it is going to teach your proper foot pressure, by planting the balls of the feet into the ground while keeping the inner ankle high. Holding this position is going to strengthen the arches of your feet and strengthen all the muscles and tendons around the ankle.

Exercise number 2: toe tucked rockers: I love this exercise for realigning the feet and creating more mobility. The key is to keep your feet as straight as possible especially the ankles. This is going to create a massive stretch on the bottoms of the feet and help to open up the plantar fascia! By keeping the ankles straight, you’ll activate and strengthen all the muscle Legs, Jogging, Exercises, Fitness, Exercise, Muscle, Strengthen, Injury, Ankle Highs
