One Big Mistake People Make on the Elliptical Machine

Using an elliptical machine is a great way to get your daily aerobic exercise in. It’s low impact and strengthens both lower and upper extremities. But I frequently see a lot of people making this one mistake when on the machine and this can lead to some game-changing foot problems.

    Dr. Perlmutter, you mention foot pain, but more specifically, could lifting the heal cause plantar fasciitis? I had a year-long bout of this that finally resolved recently and I’m wondering if that contributed to my issue. (I always assumed not since stretching the arch seemed to be helpful for the pain, but…I’m no expert on the topic).
