Are you recovering from a foot/ankle injury?
Did you know that recent research has shown that performing exercises barefoot can optimise other important muscle involvement?
- Most of the receptors, which feed information about sensory information, are located under the outside of the foot and toes.
- This information assists the body to balance.
- The receptors will also trigger the muscles at the back of the body to adjust the centre of gravity towards the toes (think about walking on a pebbly beach and you naturally take your bodyweight forward onto your toes).
- There is also increased risk of a fallen arch if you grow up wearing cushioned footwear and therefore barefoot activity may help injuries such as plantar fasciitis.
