A routine stretch that wakes up the muscles in the feet should be done in the morning before getting out of bed, Dr. Leslie Campbell, a spokeswoman for the American Podiatric Medical Association, says. Sit with legs straight out in front of you and angle your toes toward your head and then away from it. This works the Achilles tendon and the fascial band, which connects the front and back of the foot. "Jumping straight out of bed in the morning when the muscles are cold can harm the fascial band and cause plantar fasciitis, a very common and painful inflammation of the bottom of the foot," she says.

Other exercises include rolling your foot over a tennis or golf ball, which stimulates the nerve endings in the feet and protects from injury. Picking up marbles or towels with your toes strengthens the muscles in the toes and central part of the foot. And wrapping a rubber band around the toes and then expanding the toes outward supports the major muscles of the foot, Dr. Campbell says.
