When was the last time you really stretched the muscles in your feet?
Orthotists, Podiatrists and Osteopaths all agree that healthy feet play a key role in the overall health of your body.
Most adult feet have a host of problems in the form of bunions, high/low arches and general pain and difficulty.
Many of these problems are caused by the muscles and ligaments of the feet stiffening and bunching up. This locks up your feet so the bones and joints cannot move easily which means your foot does not function as it is designed to.
In fact this stiffening up of the muscles in the foot can affect your posture and gait.
Unless you are going to have a regular foot massage this can lead to all sorts of problems. And not just in the feet but also up into the hips and lower back and other parts of your body as these areas start to try and compensate. Now, however, there is an easy way to workout and stretch your toes - Theratoes toe stretchers from http://www.jdharris.co.uk
JD Harris Marketing Director Becki Fryer explains, "Toe Stretchers are simple gel moulds which fit between your toes and work the toes apart to stretch the muscles of your foot. Because they are a gel, they are gentle, unlike a rigid foam, for example".
Are you a runner?
Runners especially benefit from using Toe Stretchers because of the pounding your feet get. If you can improve the suppleness of your feet muscles your feet will work a lot more efficiently.
These are the benefits of Toe Stretchers:
- Increasing balance, surefootedness, joint range, co-ordination.
- Decreasing foot pain.
- Restoring the natural vibrancy and bounce of healthy athletic feet.
- Correcting bone/tissue/
- Improving posture, foot reaction time, stamina.
Exercising your toes using Toe Stretchers keeps your feet in tip top shape.
Toe Stretchers do the work for you. Without them it is extremely difficult to stretch the muscles of your feet.
Toe Stretchers help treat the following conditions:
- Foot Pain
- Hammer Toe
- Achilles Tendon
- Arch problems
- Plantar Fascia problems
Putting them on is easy
First, get your Toe Stretchers wet by running them under the tap. After they are wet go ahead and line up the holes in the Theratoes to your own toes. Make sure the big toe goes into the bigger end. You will have to stretch the Toe Stretchers between your own toes one at a time, starting with the big toe, so each toe is showing through the other side (if you have smaller toes or shorter toes it is ok; just make sure your toes are separated and you feel they are being stretched). Now your part is finished. Just sit back, relax, and let the Toe Stretcher gently heal.
Feel The Burn
Becki continues, "First time you use them you will feel a tense stretch, but this is a good stretch. The longer you wear them the more limber your toes become. If it hurts to wear them for long treatment sessions, then try doing more, shorter sessions during the day. The more you stretch the quicker you realise the benefits.
"Bear in mind; you are performing a stretch that your toes have never experienced before. So it will take time to develop flexibility."
