Strengthen your feet like a ballerina
Stretch a hand towel on the floor in front of you and place your bare foot on the end of the towel nearest you. Keeping your heel on the floor, curl your toes to bunch up the towel and drag it towards you. Continue until you’ve bunched up the entire towel. Do this a few times and repeat with the other foot.
Stand on one leg – barefoot on a soft surface, perhaps on a pillow or when stronger on a Bosu ball, so your stance is a bit unstable. Move up and down (5–8 cm) by bending the knee. Isometric exercises These exercises can be done while sitting in a chair. Press your foot towards a resistance (wall, table, chair, your own foot). The presses should occur in all directions. Push or pull with your foot. Use all six directions for translation and rotation: up-down, front-back, left-right. Eccentric heel drop Stand on a step with your heel off the edge Lift yourself onto your toes and then lower yourself.
