Hi welcome to Stressed Out Stress Free my
name is Vincent Woon. In this video I’m going to show you how to fix a heel pain, you know
the heel of the foot. What causes heel pain? I know the other day I woke up with a heel
pain and heel pain is very very painful. How do you get heel pain? Number one it’s
from strenuous or repetitive exercise like jumping and running. Second could be obesity.
Third is prolong standing, standing for a long time and the fourth is wearing shoes
that doesn’t fit properly, that’s how you get heel pain. I think in my case, I probably
put on some weight since the last time I went to cruise and couldn’t lose all these weight.
So I was trying to figure out how to remove the heel pain. Let me show you a few and hopefully
they help you too. For the first stretch, you need to find a
staircase, if you don’t have a staircase or a stair well, get a big/thick yellow book
yellow pages I don’t know if in the internet world nowadays I don’t know if you’ll have
a physical yellow pages book thick phone book. Now at the staircase what you do is put your
leg up, leave your bottom part here..your heel hanging like this…down up down up tippy
toes down up down up just to stretch this area here..the heel the upper part to loosen
the heel. Ok the second stretch is to look for a wall
so you can put your hand on it and stretch your heel now. Use your hands put on the wall
like you are doing push up and make sure you bend your elbow like this.
After you open your hand wide and on the wall like you are doing a push up, put one leg
forward and one leg backwards and push stretch this way like you are doing a push up. Press
this way and your leg will straighten and that will loosen/stretch the heel. What I
also do is I lift my heel up this way to get more stretch, kind of like doing a push up
on the wall but stretch this way like pumping it down forward up down, forward up down.
That will help loosen it much more than the normal stretch which is just leaning in straight
and feeling the stretch there. By lifting the heel up you’ll get a better stretch like
such, like this one, two, three. After all those stretches and if it doesn’t
work, I’m going to show you the third one which is to massage it. Ok! first you need
to take off your shoes, I’ll show you both ways.
Over here! you need to put pressure on here and move your leg basically this two back
and forth..Ouch Press down this is where the pain area so
push down push down this way push down and push make sure you stretch the ball of your
feet stretch you can feel the releases. Press on all the pain area or if you are lazy, rest
the leg on the other leg and press it here and push, very simple.
OK! if you are lazy like me, we are going to use the other heel and push it down to
where the pain area on the other heel and push it down this way and try to move the
other leg, stretch push, stretch push, stretch. Just like that… push it down and stretch
the other leg..stretch the other leg ok! Thank you for watching, these are the stretches
that helps me get rid of heel pain. If you have any question feel free to ask in the
