    1. This one is for ankles and knees.
    2. Toes, balls of the foot, calves.
    3. Ankles
    4. Toes
    5. Balls of the feet.

    This little gathering of exercises forgot about hips. And knees, really. You have 3 exercises for toes when toes aren’t even in the title of the article. Was the title of the little article just a ruse to get people to read it? Shame on you. Maybe, someday, when you’re in pain daily and must seek out alternative remedies for pain relief because of the Opioid Crisis, you won’t bother to dick around with such little, trivial things like an article about 5 exercises that can help relieve pain, but I do so that scammers like you get off the internet and quit scamming others who are worse off than I.

      Actually, these exercises WILL help with some hip pain. I can’t comment about Opioid Crisis however I have been using the ball technique for my hip pain for ages, long before i read this article and it does help me. I also use the ball against a wall for my hips, upper back and neck pain and that also helps me. So perhaps people need to be a little more open minded about out of the ordinary techniques. What works for some may not work for others.
