Strong feet are happy feet, especially as PCOS-linked type 2 diabetes can cause major problems by damaging nerve endings and impairing your ability to exercise regularly for a healthy lifestyle.
So here’s a regular exercise for building strength, increasing flexibility and circulation and relieving tightness throughout the foot, particularly in the heel and arch.
Buy an inexpensive small, soft, rubber ball, often called a pinkie ball, from a health store. Stand and place it under your left heel and use your leg muscles to exert pressure into the center of the heel for 10-15 seconds, while keeping a firm balance with your right leg throughout the exercise.
Rock back on the heel and lift the toes and then roll the foot back down for the same periods of time. Next, put the the arch of your foot on the ball and rock back and forth over it, again exerting pressure so that the entire width of the arch is in contact with the ball for 10-15 seconds. Repeat the complete process with the right foot.
