5 Stretches to Combat Foot Pain for Standing Jobs - Eastnole

Do you find yourself constantly on your feet, battling discomfort and foot pain as the day wears on? For many, a job that demands hours of standing is a daily reality, leading to foot and lower leg issues that can affect overall quality of life. Incorporating a few straightforward Yoback stretches into your routine can offer significant relief, targeting the areas most affected by prolonged standing. In this post, we'll introduce five key stretches designed to mitigate foot pain, ensuring you can continue standing tall without discomfort. 

 

The Top 5 Yoback Stretches to Alleviate Foot Pain

 

1. Calf Stretch

Honestly, I don't think there's another product on the market that gives a calf stretch better than the Yoback. Using the individual piece on the floor, the ergonomic curve fits the soles of your feet perfectly and the cork mat means you'll never slip.

 

2. Calf Raises

Calf raises are great to strengthen your calves and increase their endurance. It also feels great after a long day. Standing on the Yoback it gives you more range of motion to go higher on your tip toes and also when dropping your heels. The curved shape provides more support than a step.

 

3. Tib Raises

Strengthening the tibialis anterior is a great way to strengthen the knee and to improve your balance and coordination. It works like calf raises except you start with your heels on the top of the Yoback rather than your toes in calf raises.

 

4. VMO Squats

Heel raised squats, also know as VMO squats are probably the single best exercise you can do for strengthening your legs and especially your knees. They're harder than traditional bodyweight squats, but they help to stabilise the knee joint through building your vastus medialis oblique (VMO muscle) in your quads.

 

5. Towel / Resistance Band Stretch

Ideal for those experiencing plantar fasciitis or tight calf muscles, the towel stretch is simple and effective. This stretch can significantly improve ankle flexibility and reduce discomfort. Using the Yoback allows you to get a greater range of motion at both end points of the stretch due to not having the floor limited your movement. Take a towel or resistance band and loop it around the foot's ball. Gently pull the towel/band towards you, keeping your leg straight, until you feel a stretch in the lower part of your leg and foot. Hold for 15-30 seconds, then point your toes away from you. Then switch feet.
