Back pain is one of the most common aches in the world. It affects millions of people and is usually brought on by injuries, sitting or standing for long periods or improper posture. The pain can be mild or severe – the higher the pain, the more likely it will interfere with your daily activities.
Our balance is mainly influenced by our feet. As we all know, the feet play the most important role in our movement, but they are also important for our posture. This is why we need to pay more attention to our feet – rarely anyone thinks much of them, but their health is directly related to our movement and posture.
The feet are even related to back pain – instead of treating the painful condition with painkillers, there are several exercises you can do to relieve it. Here are the top 10 foot exercises which can treat back pain:
It’s simple – try walking on your toes for 20-30 seconds several times a day – this will strengthen your tendons and muscles and relieve the pain in your back slowly, but surely.
Yes, even simple toe stretches can relieve back pain. Just sit on the floor or a chair and cross one of your legs over the other, then stretch your toes in all directions. Repeat the process 3 times per foot every day to get some much-needed relief from back pain.
Toe pressing can activate the blood flow in your feet and relieve back pain. Stand upright on the floor with your knees bent, then grip the floor with the toes. Hold for 3 seconds or as much as you can. Repeat the process 10 times every day to strengthen your feet muscles and relieve the pain in your feet and back.
Toe pencil grip
Stand upright with your knees bent, then grab a pencil on the floor with your toes. Hold it for as much as you can, then drop the pencil, relax for a bit and repeat the exercise again. Aim for 5 repetitions per foot 2-3 times per week.
