physical therapists
Make time for stretching in your exercise routine. A dynamic stretch before, like trunk twists or gently bouncing on your toes before activities and static stretches holding the muscles on stretch for 20 seconds, is a good plan. The stretching prepares your body for activity and helps you maintain proper range of motion.

When bending down, keep your feet shoulders width apart, bend from your hips and do not round your spine. This avoids back strain.

It takes longer for foot injuries to heal because we never stop using our feet!
