Metatarsal Doming or Arcing: One of the Best Foot Intrinsic Muscle Exercises

Just had a patient come in with a possible plantar plate problems. I started him taping or wearing a budin splint, and also keeping the small muscles under the metatarsal strong with metatarsal doming or arcing exercises. It is important to look at your toes when doing them so they have minimal to no curl. I do not recommend toe curls like picking up marbles or towels when there can be a possible plantar plate tear.

  1. Is this the same exercise as when you take a towel and try to wrinkle it up with your toes?
