In general, it is often perceived as’exercising = keeping your health’. However, the formula of’exercise = health’ absolutely does not hold. For the most part, exercise helps maintain your physical health and improves your quality of life, but you should be careful because continuing exercise without taking into account your physical condition can actually hurt your health.
Many people often say that walking can be done by anyone and that good walking can cure illness. However, people with problems should be careful as other secondary problems may arise when continuing the walking exercise.
When there is a problem with the function of the foot while walking, it is typical that the plantar muscle (the arch at the foot of the foot) is lowered and flattened, or there is valgus. If people with these symptoms do walking for a long time, foot problems can become more severe. Furthermore, problems may occur in other areas such as knees, hips, and waist. Also, when a person with degenerative joint symptoms does walking, the wear of the joints can progress more quickly. Another case is that patients with back pain are better to walk, so if you exercise such as walking or swimming without treatment for pain separately, it can lead to a disease-raising result.
Exercise is good for your health when you get to know your condition well and adapt it to it. It can be rather poisonous to overlook one’s own problems and recklessly refrain from exercising that others claim to be good. So, let’s look at some of the basics that can help you keep your body in good shape.
The first is good and healthy breathing. The breathing we are talking about is not just inhaling and exhaling. It refers to relaxing tension by feeling breathing with your whole body from head to toe. Breathing is closely related to the circulation of the body. Therefore, if you do not breathe properly, circulation is difficult and various diseases are caused. For example, there are people who hold their breath with their molars tightly bitten when they are tense or stressed in their daily life. After 5 minutes in this state, a headache or dizziness comes, but because you cannot breathe properly, circulation is difficult. Therefore, breathing to help the circulation of the body is good to practice inhaling slowly through the nose and exhaling all over again for 10 to 20 minutes a day. If possible, breathing 10 minutes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner will benefit your health both physically and mentally.
The second is the body alignment that has always been emphasized. To keep this body aligned properly, it is of utmost importance to strengthen the posture-holding muscles. This posture maintenance muscle does not move very much, so it is not easy to strengthen it. Even if the movement of the part exceeds 15-20 degrees, the next muscle begins to move, so in order to strengthen the posture-maintaining muscle without making large movements, an expert’s diagnosis and exercise prescription are required. This is because each individual has a different history of injured in the past and his professional lifestyle, so it is difficult to do the same exercise collectively. For that reason, the proportion of members who receive personal training in health clubs is increasing recently.
The exercise we are going to do this week is a movement that will help your feet health. If the plantar muscle is broken and the foot looks like a flat foot, then the footbow should be made again. Algebraic valgus is also a symptom that firstly becomes flat feet and then appears secondarily, so improving flat feet can improve it.
If you have a rubber band or silicone band with good elasticity, insert it between your toes and pull the band with your toes. When you do it for the first time, it will be hard to pull it with your toes, but when you get used to it, pull the band with your hand to give it resistance. When you do this, you can see that the arch is lifted on the foot, and the foot gradually recovers from the flat foot to near normal. If you don’t have a band, you can get the same effect if you do foot movements as if you were picking up objects under the foot arch.
When these functions of the feet are spared, corns and calluses disappear from the feet, and the feet gradually stiffen.
