Think of a tennis ball as an inexpensive foam roller for your feet. During this video, Ranch Instructor Adam Gallow demonstrates a relaxed and short rollout where you can massage and stimulate the plantar fascia and muscles in your feet. This simple approach to foot care can help strengthen your ankles, knees, hips, lower back, and spine. A little self-care in the morning or at the end of your day might be the sweet relief your feet need to help get a good night’s sleep.
It doesn’t take much pressure to help loosen the tight or tender areas of your foot. Start by stepping gently onto the ball and slowly put more weight as you warm up. A few minutes in the morning can really help start the day on the right foot. So grab a tennis ball, golf ball, or water bottle and roll with it.
