Flat feet?

If you suffer from flat feet, you know how painful it can be to wear shoes that aren’t giving you the support you need.

How about strengthening those arches, though, and being pain free instead?

As a young girl I had flat feet. Every morning before school started, our house matron (I went to boarding school) would gather the girls with flat feet and make us exercise!

The exercise was simple. We would go up on our tip toes and back down, up and down, up and down. Then roll onto the heel and back, roll and back, scrunch the toes and lengthen, scrunch and lengthen. Finally, roll onto the sides and back, sides and back……. for about ten minutes!

If you have a child with flat feet, start them early with these exercises and they will not suffer later in life. You can also use a tennis ball to roll in the arch.

It worked for me!
