Hot Tub Exercises to End Foot Pain
October 17, 2020
The foot contains 33 joints, 26 bones, more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments, and there are 250,000 sweat glands in there. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. After all, your feet have the task of supporting your entire body! It’s hard to think about anything else when your feet are aching, and your feet are too important to feel tired and weak. A great solution to end foot pain doesn’t require prescriptions. Instead, all it takes is time spent exercising in your hot tub.
Put a sock in front of you at the bottom of your spa. Pick it up with your toes, hold it for 10 seconds and then let it drop again. Repeat with the other foot. Continue this exercise until you’ve completed five repetitions with each foot.
Lift your foot several inches off the bottom of your spa and use your big toe to write each letter of the alphabet. Repeat with the other foot. Write the alphabet several times with each foot every time you relax in your hot tub.
