Dr Oz’s Watch & Win Hour included a segment on feet health. As you age, so do your feet. In fact, Doctor Oz said that 80% of people complain about having foot pain. What causes foot pain and what can you do about it? Dr Oz spoke about foot conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Hammer Toe and Metatarsalgia. Plus, he gave everyone in his audience a free pair of Aerosoles Benefit Shoes. I will tell you below how you can enter for a chance to win Dr Oz’s Free Aerosoles Shoe Giveaway!
Dr Oz: Plantar Fasciitis Exercise
Dr Oz showed a foot exercise for relieving and preventing Plantar Fasciitis. Put your foot up on your knee (like you are crossing your legs), and push up on your toes towards the top of your foot – particularly your big toe. You will feel a pressure and stretch in your foot. Do this for a count of 10 every morning before you get out of bed. You can also get special Plantar Fasciitis Shoe Inserts or talk to your podiatrist about making you orthotics so that your aches and pains do not get worse over time.
Dr Oz: Hammer Toe Marble Exercise
Dr Oz showed another exercise to help prevent and improve a condition called Hammer Toes. A Hammer Toe is when your toe curls and bends, remaining stuck that way. If you fill a small container with marbles and place it on the ground, try to pick up as many marbles as you can with your toes. This helps to lengthen your toes and to stretch them out.
Dr Oz: Metatarsalgia
Dr Oz said that Metatarsalgia happens when the metatarsal bone starts to touch the ground and can cause a lot of pain. If you wear high heels, you need 1/2″ of space between your toes and the end of the shoe. You also want a cushion built into the inside of the shoe.
