Did you know you can — and should — stretch your feet on a regular basis, especially if you exercise a lot? If not, you risk plantar fasciitis, which is a fancy way of saying the tissue on the bottom of the foot gets irritated and inflamed. "Stretching the foot before any physical activity can help to alleviate symptoms, as well as icing after," says Dr. Bela Pandit. Over-the-counter arch supports can also help.
