Feet First Stretch Tutorials Volume 1

Instagram is my jam. I love it as a social platform specifically because you can curate inspiring and empowering content for yourself accordingly. 

Feet First’s Instagram feed is chock-full of knowledge and fun. The posts can also be found on our Facebook and Pinterest. A Stretch Tutorial series launched at the top of 2021. Highlighting the simple ways to care for our foot health is a way to get yourself moving, especially at home. 

With all of the information available on our social platforms, and including our Blog, the team at Feet First wants to help you build a solid foot care regimen and support an overall healthy lifestyle from the ground up.

An important component to any foot care regimen is stretching: Regularly stretching and conditioning the muscles in our feet and legs is one of the best ways you can effectively treat and prevent foot pain. It helps you regain muscle strength, rebuild your range of motion, and potentially even reverse the damage caused by many common foot conditions.

Here are the stretches from January, demonstrated effectively from the Feet First team leader, Bianca!:

ROUND 1: Towel Stretch

Great for:

Hold the stretch for 15-30 seconds and release. Repeat x3-5 times.
