Tips for Starting to Walk as Exercise

Walking is one of the most popular forms of exercise, mainly because it’s easy to do, costs relatively little money, and has a positive effect on general health. Another reason for its popularity is the low-impact nature of walking. It puts far less pressure on the joints, and the risk of injury is low. Walking is also believed to improve circulation, help control blood pressure, and release stress. To get started on walking as an exercise, experts suggest finding the proper footwear. This not only increases the benefits of walking, it also helps to prevent foot problems. Make sure the shoes are designed for walking and not running or another activity. Be aware of proper cushioning and arch support, both of which can help to ward off plantar fasciitis. It is beneficial to start out walking easy and work your way up to a total of about 150 minutes a week. Also, warming up before your walk and cooling down with stretches afterward are important ways to prevent injury. For more information about getting started with walking for exercise, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist.

Exercising your feet regularly with the proper foot wear is a great way to prevent injuries and build strength. If you have any concerns about your feet, contact Edward Orman, DPM from Honeygo Podiatry. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Exercise for Your Feet

Exercise for your feet can help you gain strength, mobility and flexibility in your feet. They say that strengthening your feet can be just as rewarding as strengthening another part of the body. Your feet are very important, and we often forget about them in our daily tasks. But it is because of our feet that are we able to get going and do what we need to. For those of us fortunate enough to not have any foot problems, it is an important gesture to take care of them to ensure good health in the long run.

Some foot health exercises can include ankle pumps, tip-toeing, toe rises, lifting off the floor doing reps and sets, and flexing the toes. It is best to speak with Our doctor to determine an appropriate regimen for your needs. Everyone’s needs and bodies are different, and the activities required to maintain strength in the feet vary from individual to individual. 

Once you get into a routine of doing regular exercise, you may notice a difference in your feet and how strong they may become.

Common Foot Bone Injuries

With 26 bones in the foot, sustaining an injury to any of them is not uncommon. The most common bone-related foot problems involve the tarsal bones, the metatarsal bones, and the phalanges. The tarsal bones include the talus or ankle bone, the calcaneus or heel bone, and the bones that form the arch of the foot. These are the three cuneiforms, the cuboid, and the navicular. The metatarsals are five long bones of the foot that connect the heel to the toes. The phalanges, or toes, are made up of several bones each. The big toe is the most prominent bone and the workhorse of the phalanges. Bunions, arthritis, and gout are common bone-related foot conditions that involve the big toe. Hammertoe, a muscle and ligament imbalance, usually occurs in the second or third toe. Heel spurs and plantar fasciitis involve the calcaneus, or heel bone. A condition called sesamoiditis affects two tiny free floating bones at the base of the big toe. Stress fractures most commonly occur in the metatarsal bones from overuse. If you are experiencing pain in any of the bones of the feet, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist for an exam and diagnosis.
