Intrinsic Foot Strengthening

In this video I take you through some exercise progressions for the development of intrinsic foot strength…a grossly ignored aspect of physical conditioning which in my opinion has erroneously led to the over-perscription, and over-utilization of orthotics….as well as an industry that is geared towards making you think your feet have something ‘inherently’ wrong with them.  What is wrong….WEAKNESS!

I further describe this problem in the video and then demonstrate some exercises that you can use on you patients (or yourself) to take back your foot control.
