Foot Exercises: Presented by Elizabeth Larkam
I am so happy to find my colleague and former head our Dance Medicine division at the Center For Sports Medicine Elizabeth Larkam. I am presenting Elizabeth's series on foot exercises. These are extremely helpful, but watch for pain or cramping in some of the metatarsal doming (Elizabeth is very skilled). Go easy when you start doing this series. Try to do them 1 or 2 times per week. This set of exercises is for range of motion and some strength. Elizabeth does them so easy, so don't be frustrated. I have the attached my most recent post on foot exercises which this can couple with. I like her comment on doing 2 per day of the variety of exercises. Your feet will slowly get more flexible and strong. And do not forget your yogatoes or their equivalent.
