foot trainers question

Posted by Jill H. on 8/23/04 at 14:24 (158585)

For those that are or have used the foot trainer device - is it similiar to using a short dog leash? I have used the leash, putting the circle part over my foot and stretching it back. Just wondering if the foot trainer product would be much different?

Foot trainers do it differently. You dorsifelx and pushback against them, rather than pulling the dorsiflexion. Gets different muscles as far as I can tell. I bought a pair last month

Are you glad you bought the Foot Trainers? Do you think they are helping you?

I think they're building some strength in my foot, and that can't be bad. For $60 I'm not sorry I bought them. I'd spend that on one physio treatment anyway.
