Brookfield WI Podiatrist Helps You Start Your Exercise on the Right Foot: Don’t Overlook Your Foot Stretches

brookfield wi podiatrist exercise foot stretchesWith summer behind us, we somewhat sadly store the beach and pool equipment away for yet another season. However, the month of September is often a good time of year to sign up for a fitness class, start a new exercise routine, or even participate in a new sport at school. While many athletes already know the importance of a thorough warm up before starting any type of exercise, our Brookfield WI podiatrist wants you to know that proper stretching is often overlooked when it comes to your feet.

Put Your Best Foot Forward with These Handy Exercise & Stretching Tips from Our Brookfield WI Podiatrist

A 15-minute warm up before every exercise routine is important. It allows all your muscles to be more flexible and efficient during your workout. Gentle, gradual stretches increase both blood flow and body temperature to help maximize muscle performance during the most strenuous part of your activity. In addition, according to our Brookfield podiatrist, appropriately stretching both your ankle and foot is one of the best ways to prevent injuries, such as an ankle sprain. No matter what exercise routine you choose – from tennis to taekwondo and everything in between – our Brookfield WI podiatrist recommends adding these simple, easy foot stretches to every warm up:

Remember: don’t start your new exercise routine off on the “wrong foot”! Your warmed-up muscles perform better in every type of exercise, and you will also enjoy the added benefit of greater flexibility.
