You might be wondering why we are devoting an entire blog post to the topic? Then you may not have thought about the fact that your feet will carry you everywhere and that you need them for almost everything in your everyday life. Pay more attention to your feet again. Our exercises in the areas of mobility, strengthening and triggering will help you!

Although the pain is often clearly on the bottom of the foot, this does not have to be the immediate cause of all evil. Why you might have massaged the wrong places so far and how you can optimize your treatment in the future without having to see a doctor are explained in the exercises on the topics of the foot and lower leg.
The mobility and stability of our ankle are particularly important when you use it for movements like sprinting, jumping or squatting. To prepare your ankle for movements in all possible directions, start with a very simple mobilization of your ankle. Come from a hip-width stance into a deep lunge, place your left foot in front and the right knee down on the floor. Move your left knee over your ankle and move the knee slowly and controlled back and forth and from the left to the right. While doing this, your entire foot stays flat on the floor.
Your stand is a little wider than shoulder wide. Lift your arms forward to chest level and sit in a deep squat. Your back is long and your knees are pushing apart. At the bottom you open your body to the left side. Lift your left arm in a stretched position and rotate with your entire thoracic spine. Meanwhile you can place the right hand in front of you or apply pressure on the inside of your thigh with the elbow. Your gaze follows your hand upwards. Once you have done the exercise on both sides, stretch your arms upwards, next to your head. Repeat the sequence several times.
The calf muscles are responsible for stretching the foot and thus when pushing off during running under load. Due to high loads, the muscle can therefore quickly tense and thus harden. Our Triggerdinger are perfect for working the tension out of your calf. Traditionally, the most effective points are those in the upper part of the muscle. After the Triggerdinger has worked its way into the muscle tissue, you can begin to rotate your lower leg slightly to the right and the left or tighten and extend your food. Our “Middle Man” feels most at home with the Gastrocnemius.
Triggering plantar fascia
The plantar fascia runs in the inner surface of the foot between the toes and the heel and often tenses when the feet are overloaded. Pain in the sole and heels is the result, even the Achilles tendon and the waist are affected by the plantar fascia, which is why regular treatment is really important.
With our “Füßling” especially developed for the foot, the plantar fascia can be perfectly triggered.
