Slippers at home: do not abuse them
We are going to spend many days at home, so the main advice is not to always wear flip flops or slippers at home. It is best to spend enough time barefoot, with socks to protect the feet from the cold. Dr. Mario Estévez's recommendation is to take the daily shoes or work shoes. Why? Because this way we will avoid that the foot loses the habit. If you do not put your everyday shoes in this quarantine at any time, you may have a problem with your feet when you return to normal.
Easy exercises to strengthen your feet without leaving home
- If you have the possibility to climb stairs, do it. It will help you activate your feet.
- You can also stand on tiptoe and do repetitions: this strengthens the posterior leg muscles and stimulates circulation.
- Pay attention to this simple and beneficial towel exercise: sit in a chair and place a spread towel on the floor in front of you. Put your toes on the end of the towel and wrinkle them so that you pull the towel toward you. It's about getting the towel moving by grabbing it with your toes, and moving it. This exercise strengthens the muscles of the top of the foot and toes. You can increase the difficulty by placing a small weight on top of the towel, and it is best to do five repetitions with each foot.
- And another very positive action: maintain balance with bare feet on one leg, for one minute with each foot.
Estévez Podiatric Clinic puts all its strength into overcoming this situation, and that is why it works with all the rigor of sanitary measures and precautions. They send a message of collective responsibility and also of hope. Cheer up everyone!
