Flexibility Issue: There are 2 reasonably unique muscles in the lower body- the hamstrings and calves (gastrocnemius). What makes them unique is that these two muscles cross 2 major joints, which makes them hard to keep stretched out. When we sit, these 2 muscles tighten. Then, when we stand to walk, we are too tight to be comfortably upright. You have got to stay loose throughout the day. Stretch 3-5x each day. ...Read more

3 possible sources: Foot pain can come from local (foot) issues, from nerves that go to the foot or from the spine. If there is back or leg pain as well, look to the lumbar spine discs or the sciatic or peroneal nerves as the source of pain.
