Ankles are the most stressed yet overlooked body part. Ankle and feet pain can be easily relived after adopting ankle exercises after a physiotherapy session. Moving your ankles in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction for about 10 times.
Knee physiotherapy exercises are the most strenuous ones. Sit on a chair with a ball underneath your feet. Roll it forth and back on the floor. Repeat about 10 times.
Neck exercises aim to relieve the additional stress that you put on your neck especially during long work hours or when you happen to jerk your neck suddenly. Sitting straight on a chair move your head to one side of the shoulder till you feel your neck stretched. Hold for about 10 seconds and then repeat on the other side.
Back exercises are allaying even when physiotherapy is not performed. Keeping your legs straight, lie on your back and fold your left knee close to the chest. Hold the position, return to normal straight position and repeat it with the right leg.
You can alternatively perform another exercise wherein you have to stand straight opening your hands parallel to the ground and then touching your right leg with your right hand. Regain original position and repeat with other hand.
