Commentary:The Foot Strength Plan
Topic:Physical Education and SportTags:The Foot Strength Plan
Healthy, strong feet. That’s the goal of this book. Why? Perhaps you’re achy and sore at the end of a work day, standing on concrete. Or maybe you want your feet to feel better during or after exercise. Our feet connect us to every step we take. Why not make your connection to the ground stronger, improve your balance and gain back control over each step.
This book offers a step by step guide (and some humor) to get your feet working for you. Injuries of all kinds, like plantar fasciitis, bunions, metatarsalgia, and more can benefit from healthy, strong feet. When you move better, you’ll feel better.
