Towel Curl

Towel curl exercise for the foot

For the towel curl exercise:

  • While sitting, place your foot on a towel on the floor and scrunch the towel toward you with your toes.
  • Then, also using your toes, push the towel away from you.
  • Make this exercise more challenging by placing a weighted object, such as a soup can, on the other end of the towel.

Talk with your doctor or physical therapist if you have questions about how to do this or any other exercise.
