Reflexology May Help Foot Conditions

Monday, 08 February 2021 00:00

Reflexology is a form of  foot therapy that may benefit the health of the overall body. The internal organs are linked to specific areas of the foot, and existing health conditions may be improved with frequent visits. Gentle pressure is applied to different parts of the foot to help the nerves release tension and promote relaxation. Foot therapy may also be beneficial in bringing balance to the body, and many patients notice how pleasant reflexology can be. If you are experiencing a specific type of foot condition, and are interested in how reflexology works, it is suggested that you confer with a podiatrist.

During physical therapy you will undergo regimented training to get back into full form. Training is often very difficult, especially at first when the foot feels weak. Physical therapy often involves:

Basic stretching and twisting exercises – getting the feet’s mobility and flexibility up.

Massaging – the therapist will massage the injured area in order to activate the muscles and relax them.
