Do Foot Push-Ups

tiptoes

 

While barefoot or wearing comfortable sneakers, go on your tip toes (actually, ball of your foot) by contracting your calf muscles.  Do 25 repetitions 3x/day.  You can accentuate the exercise by standing on top and near the edge of  a thick phone book and allowing your heels to go lower on the way down.  Try carrying a 10 pound medicine ball (or heavier) as the exercise gets easier.

This will strengthen your foot and ankle and make them resistant to mechanical dysfunction.
