The best prevention helping to avoid many problems with your feet, especially when they work hard for you, is to strengthen their muscles with appropriate exercises.

You may use natural situations such as walking barefoot on soft ground, like grass, sand, small pebbles or shells. Difficult ground makes you mechanically pull up the toes, keeping your muscles tense. However, walking on hard and non-flexible ground promotes flatfoot formation.

What if I have no opportunity to practice in the nature? These are the exercises that you may do at home:

– tiptoeing and walking on heels and external edges, alternately

– making circles with your toes

– rolling fabric spread on the ground with your toes, e.g. thin towel or handkerchief

– caterpillar walk – by pulling up and straightening toes you move forward like a caterpillar. Wear socks and exercise on a wooden floor.

But remember: only regular and frequent training will give visible effects.
