We are all aware of the fact that our bones are connected to one another in the body, and thus, the pain in one area may lead to issues in others as well. For instance, the pain which originates in the foot actually causes pain in the leg.
There are numerous reasons, over 25, for the pain felt in the feet, like bunions, corns, heel spurs, arthritis, athlete’s foot, overlapping toes, and ingrown toenails, and all of them lead to some kind of discomfort.
The feet are connected to numerous points in the body, which is the basis of the Chinese reflexology as well, which is old for millennia, and suggests that the feet are the source of the entire health of the body.
Due to that, there are numerous detox foot baths which are based on the claims that the feet are the perfect place for elimination of toxins. In order to relieve foot pain, you can try some effective natural alternatives, and stretches are one of the best of them, and can be done in 5 minutes.
The Toe Raise
Elevate your toes while standing on the feet. Lift the pinky toe at the same height as the big toe and repeat 5 times with both feet.
While in the same position, lower just the big toe, while the others are still up. If you can’t press it down, press the pinky toe down instead, and repeat 5 times with each foot.
Toes and Fingers
In a sitting position, with the legs in front, and the toes pointing upwards. Then, lean forward, and with the fingers pull the toes back gently. If you cannot perform this with both feet, you should do it with one foot at a time.
