How to do the Belt Stretch
Take a wide belt and hold one end in each hand. Place the center of the belt over the ball of the foot. With your knee straight, pull your ankle back toward you using the belt and the muscle on the front of your leg. Think about reverse stretching your arch. Pull back and hold for ten seconds. Relax and repeat for five to ten minutes. Perform this exercise twice a day for a week to begin experiencing results.
Benefits of the Belt Stretch for Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Pain
Stretching is one of the most effective treatments for plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is often caused by tight muscles of the calves and feet, so stretching helps to relieve tension on the ligament.
Stretching is most effective when performed regularly in combination with rest, icing, and orthotics.
