Get rid of your old tennis ball! The foot has 28 bones and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments and is often overlooked and neglected.
By releasing the tension in your lower leg and foot you will help to alleviate pain and regain flexibility and strength. When the muscles get tight they can start pulling over time, which can cause the muscles to work improperly and can lead to injury. You can self-massage by placing the ball under your foot or calf and roll until you feel a tight spot and hold for 30 seconds. Keep repeating with different spots from your heel to your metatarsals
