Your "Second Heart"....Your “Foot Beat”
With February being American Heart Month, Naboso draws our attention to the fact that our feet are actually considered our "second heart"!
Your “Foot Beat”
The simple action of moving the ankle up and down, such as when we walk, activates our calf pump and it pushes the blood back up to the heart.
Movement Is Key!
One of the best ways to support venous return is with movement!
The action of pushing off to take a step or to go upstairs forces our calves to contract and pushes the blood back up to our heart.
Try to fit in at least 5,000 steps a day if you can for optimal foot and heart health.
Improve foot circulation
