Exercises for Neuropathy of the Feet
Sit in a chair with your heels on the floor. Your feet can be touching or separated about hips-distance apart. Lift the toes of your feet off the floor, then lower them, creating a tapping motion. Repeat this exercise between 15 and 20 times. Another variation is to place your heels together, then lift your toes off the floor as high as you can. Turn your feet outward, so that you create a “V” shape with your heels still touching the floor. Touch your toes to the floor, then lift them again, bring them together, and touch them to the floor once more. Repeat this sequence between five and 10 times.
Sit in a chair with your back straight, knees together. Lift your right foot off the floor, straightening your right knee at the same time. Point your toes into the distance. Holding the leg out straight, point your toes toward your body in a deep flex. Circle your ankle joint clockwise, then counterclockwise five times. Lower your right foot to the floor and repeat the exercise with your left foot.
