Hi, this is Dr. Sikorsky, and these are my feet again. And I've been showing you guys my feet, they're going to become famous. So, this is part of the plantar fascia series that we've been doing. And I give patients lots and lots of exercises, many different ones, but I have some basic foundation ones. And so, for plantar fascia, we're going to show two basic ones. This is the first one. And I call it the bathroom exercise because you can do it in the bathroom, and it's a nice place to do it. And what we're going to do is we're going to take our toes, we're going to pull them up, we're going to try to spread our toes. Now, your toes aren't going to spread very well, that doesn't matter.
We're going to come down, and then we're going to pull the towel in and try to really build our arch; 1, 2, and then we come back down, up, spread, down, arch. Good. And then, you just do that two or three times while you're in the bathroom, just working on pulling the whole towel towards you. And then, once you get the whole towel scrunched up, you would put the towel back out and redo it. Now, you can do this a couple of times a day. For ladies, it's much easier than men because of just the mechanics of going to the bathroom. But the towel exercise is great. You could do this in front of the TV, just working on scrunching up the towel, pulling it. Really building your arch and making it big. And this is a basic exercise, but it is a really nice beautiful exercise. Good.
