Foot and Ankle General Strengthening Program
Strengthening exercises for the foot and ankle are numerous with some helpful and some possibly harmful. I hope that these exercises will give anyone looking to strengthen their feet and ankles a good start. After 30 years of being a podiatrist, the word is finally out. People need to strengthen their feet and ankles. The video shows the basic program taught by our physical therapy staff at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco. Patients can monthly increase the number of sets and reps done, and change the exercises to make them more challenging. This is a great 3 to 4 time a week program when you know you should be building up the strength in these poorly often neglected feet of ours.
