Exercises for Heel Pain or Tightness
Foot-strengthening exercises done with a towel and weights. See a picture of a towel curls exercise.
Foot-stretching exercises done with a towel. See a picture of a towel stretch exercise.
Some people may choose more intensive strengthening and flexibility programs, especially competitive athletes, people who want to return to a heavy sports program, or people who are highly motivated. A physical therapist or trainer can help supervise a program recommended by your sports medicine specialist or a foot specialist, such as an orthopedist or podiatrist.
