In your normal day, your foot and leg muscles are the most used muscles in your body. They take up the entire weight of your whole body yet are amongst the smallest muscles in the body. Thus, as a result you are more prone to aches and pains. Hence, you want to sit down and let these muscles rest. Stretching and strengthening these small muscles can alleviate a portion of your fatigue and pain. Therefore, by stretching and strengthening these muscles, it allows them to work harder and for longer.

How does it Affect Your Heel?

Two of your major muscle groups are in the calves and arches. Soreness, tightness, cramping, restlessness and weaknesses are common complaints. They are caused by overuse: continuous and heavy load. Overuse leads to your heel conditions. If your condition is not treated in the early stages it may become excruciating. In the cases of plantar fasciitis and Achilles Tendon injuries it may cause rupture and subsequent surgery. A well devised stretching and strengthening regime will improve these conditions in the early stages.

Other Reasons for Setting Up a Rehabilitation Exercise Program

There are other reasons to devise an exercise regime:

  • Improving your range of movement in joints from stretching slows the degeneration of our joints.
  • Warming up your muscles prepares your body for the stresses it is about to go through.
  • A flexible joint is more energy efficient.
  • By stretching your joints, it enhances circulation.
