What causes burning feet??? Well, the most important thing to understand is that cause of the problem is probably in your lower back, not in your feet. Just like sciatica pain is felt down the back of your leg when the sciatic nerve gets yanked on by the muscles in your hips……

So too with the burning feet sensation you've been dealing with. The problem is most likely coming from your fifth lumbar nerve that begins in your lower back and travels all the way down to the bottom of your feet. If that nerve is compromised (yanked on) in a certain way it you will experience the burning soles of the feet you've been dealing with.

Most likely your lower back and/or hips have gotten very tight and are causing those feet burning sensations. The good news is that if you'll just follow along with the videos below then you can probably fix it yourself and stop the bottom of your feet from feeling like they're burning.

There are also many complimentary videos on this site that can help with burning feet sensations. After you've followed along with these, feel free to visit the Site Map Page (click here) for more videos.

Video 1 of 4 - Hip and Lower Back Release



feet burning nerve pathway
The stretches in this first video will allow what we do in the later videos to be much more effective. Once your hips are free, your lower back can let go much more easily and your burning feet sensation can disappear.

A. Reclined Hip Stretch -

Lie on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Cross one leg over the other so your ankle is resting on the knee of the other leg. Now, with one hand grabbing the ankle that is resting on your knee and your other hand grabbing the knee of that same leg, pull that leg toward your chest.

You will feel this pull on all the muscles in your buttocks. Pull on your leg, then let go a bit, pull again, relax a bit, and you'll feel the muscles stretch a bit each time you do this. Do this for a minute or so.

Do the same thing on the other side. Then go back to the first side. Alternate sides a few times and you'll notice improvement as you return again to either side and stretch it.

B. Seated Hip Stretch -

Sit on the floor with one leg bent at a 90 degree angle in front of you, and the other leg at a 90 degree angle behind you. Lean forward over your front shin and notice that you'll feel a stretch deep in your buttocks. You do NOT want to feel this stretch in your knee, so if you do feel it in your knee then move your foot higher or lower so you do not feel it in your knee.

Lean over your knee, then shin, then ankle and notice the different areas you feel being stretched. Most likely you'll feel the deepest stretch when you lean over you ankle.

Do this stretch on one side for a minute or so, then switch to the other side. Do three sets, at least, before moving on.

C. Tennis Ball Hip Release -

You will be sitting on a tennis ball for all the tender spots from the bottom of your butt, all the way up to your lower back. When you find a tender spot, use your body weight to apply pressure to the spot with the tennis ball, then move your leg to make the tissue being pressed on by the ball move under the pressure.

The Tennis Ball Tune-Up Page (click here) is an entire video and page dedicated to showing you how to do this one technique if the video above needs more explanation.

Video 2 of 4 - Front Of Back and Passive Lower Back Release



While all the techniques in these videos are important.  If I could only pick two for you to get rid of your burning feet sensations it would be these two below.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Release The Front Of Your Back -
(to see an entire video dedicated solely to releasing the front of your back, click here)

Inner Hip Release

We're going to release a muscle called your iliacus the attaches to the inside of your hip bones. It's a muscle, just like any other muscle, so when it's tender it means it's too tight. When you release it you may find it's your instant lower back pain remedy.

Lie on your back with your knees up and your feet flat on the floor. Reach down and find your hip bone at the lower side of your abdomen. Come to the inside of your hip bone and press on the muscle tissue that attaches to the inner side of your hip bone. From the top of your hip bone all the way down to your pubic bone press on the muscle tissue and notice any tender spots. Do the press-pull-release technique combined with the hand-on-hand technique on any tender areas.

You can also cross one leg over the other or let your leg hang out to the side to get different angles of access to some areas (as shown in the video).

Repeat this entire process on the other side of your body.

Side of Spine Release

Now we're going to release a muscle called your psoas that runs down the sides of the front of your spine. It too is a common cause of lower back pain. It's a very strong muscle so releasing it is often the lower back pain remedy you've been looking for.

While still lying on your back with your knees up and your feet flat on the floor, take the tips of your fingers and find your pubic bone. Move up about an inch from your pubic bone and about an inch to one side of your midline (your belly button is a good midline marker) and gently but firmly press into your belly.

Now "tuck your tailbone" up and down a little bit. It's important that you do NOT engage (tighten) your abdominal muscles while you do this or you'll push your fingertips out of your belly. It seems to help if you push into your feet just a bit when you tuck as it seems to make it easier not to engage your abdominals.

Try to find the place where you can feel your psoas muscle moving under your fingertips. It may or may not be tender where you are pushing but I want you to at least locate the psoas muscle by making it move.

Now you just do the press-hold-move technique with a modified hand-on-hand technique to release your psoas muscle on both sides.

Watching the video for this technique should clarify much of this written description.

B. Passive Low Back Stretch -

This stretch ideally has you comfortably lying on your back with your low back hanging off the edge of some stacked towels, pillows, or cushions, with your buttocks resting on the floor, and the soles of your feet pulled up toward your buttocks and pressed together.
The goal is to get some gentle……and I do mean gentle traction on your back.

Here's how we'll do it:

The goal is to have your upper body supported by the cushions as you lie on them, with your low back hanging off the edge and your buttocks touching the floor……

So take the cushions off your couch or all the pillows off your bed and place them on the floor so you can lie comfortably flat on them. Or stack some towels folded lengthwise so they stack about 6 inches high. The stiffer the cushions the better. You want them to squish down to about 6 inches thick when all your body weight compresses them.

Position your body on the cushions so your low back hangs off the edge of the cushions and your buttocks touches the ground with some of your body weight.

Pull your feet toward your hips and put the soles of your feet together, so your knees are now hanging out to the side in mid-air.

Take a couple of soft pillows and shove them under the sides of your legs to support them, but allowing for a gentle stretch of your inner thighs is good.

Once you are comfortable, stay in this position for about 5 minutes. Do take the time to make sure you can comfortably relax in this position. It's time well spent.

After about 5 minutes, gently bring your knees together and put your feet flat on the floor……
And now gently roll your entire body to the side to get off the pillows.
Take your time getting up as you may be a bit stiff in certain areas after this stretch.
Feel free to walk around for a couple of minutes before doing the next stretch.

Video 3 of 4 - Outer Hamstring, I.T. Band, and Calf Release



These are simple and effective stretches to make sure that L5 nerve that goes from your lower back all the way down to the bottom of your foot is as free as possible. Sometimes these alone will relieve yourburning feet sensations

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Hamstring Stretch -

Your hamstrings are the muscles on the back of your legs from the top of the back of your knees to the bottom of your buttocks. I'm going to show you a basic hamstring stretch with one important trick that makes all the difference. Then I'm going to add have you turn your foot inward to stretch your outer hamstring. Everything will be the same except for the way you turn one foot.

Here we go:

While keeping your legs straight,
stand with your feet shoulder width apart
with your weight in the balls of your feet (that means in the front of your foot and not in your heals, but not in your toes either)
bend forward like you where trying to touch the floor with your fingertips,
go as far as you can with just your bodyweight pushing you down
When you reach the point where your body won't naturally go any further you should feel a bit of tension in your hamstrings.

NOW THE TRICK:
Once you reach the point of bending over with only your bodyweight
FLEX YOUR THIGH MUSCLES (quadriceps)- the muscles that straighten your legs
While at the same pressing as hard as you can to reach the floor with your fingertips.

Keep your legs straight while you do this and don't cheat!
You should feel this all the way from your calf muscles up to your butt when done properly.

Press for a count of 5 to 10 seconds for each rep, do 3 sets of 3 reps per set.

AND THE TWIST:
Now you'll do the exact same stretch except you'll turn ONE of your feet inward about forty-five degrees, and do the above stretch with your foot in that position. You should feel the stretch going up the outside part of the back of your leg. Do three repetitions on one side, and then do the same with the other foot and leg.

B. Tensor Fascia Latae, IT Band Stretch -

There are many ways to skin a cat, but I'm going to show you the simplest and most effective stretch for your tensor fascia latae that I've found.

Stand in from of a stable object like a pole, a desk, a door jam you can grab, a tree, etc.
Take the foot on the side you want to stretch and place it half a step behind you.
Now cross behind the front leg and plant on the floor as far as you comfortably can while supporting yourself using the stable object you are standing in front of. You may already feel a good stretch going up the side of your leg to the side of your hip in this position.
Now tilt your upper away from the side you are stretching and feel the stretch go from the side of your leg all the way up to the top side of your hip. It actually feels good!

C. Calf Stretch (do this stretch slowly) -

Stand on the edge of a stair with the weight in the ball of your foot.

Slowly , gently let your heel drop below the level of the ball of your foot until you feel a stretch in your calf muscle. Slowly ad more of your bodyweight to the stretch until your heel is as far down as you are comfortable going. Do NOT bounce, go slowly.

Now raise your ankle slowly back up to level with the ball of your foot, and then slowly lower it again. Do this and notice how each time your calf lets go a bit more. Important - This is NOT a calf raise, DO NOT raise your heel any higher than the level of the ball of your foot.

Repeat this stretch slowly and gently until you notice a substantial improvement in your calf tension. Feel free to do alternate sets with your other calf as it's probably tight as well, and will give your first calf a bit of a break.

Video 4 of 4 - Shin Muscle, Bottom of Foot Release



what causes burning feet
Last, but by no means least, do these last couple of techniques to make sure those burning feet sensations aren't still being caused by two very strong and important muscles.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Shin Muscle Release -

Sit in a chair or lie on your back to what follows.

Take the foot experiencing ankle pain and rest it on your opposite thigh or knee just like your were crossing your leg in normal life.

Position the ankle so it hangs out past the leg it is resting on……again just like one would often do in regular life. You want this to be a comfortable position, so feel free to play around a bit to find a comfortable way to be in this position.

Now take the tips of the fingers of one of your opposite hand and press it into the muscle that makes up the outer half of your shin (tibialis anterior). The inside half of your shin is a bone, the outer half of your shin is a muscle.

With your fingertips in place the palm of your other hand over your fingertips to help add more pressure as you work to release the tissue. This is the hand-on-hand technique, which is described in detail on the the techniques page.

With your hands staying in the same position,move along your leg and press on this muscle tissue from the bottom of your knee to the top your ankle, and from the edge of you shin bone all the way out to the edge of your outer leg bone (fibula).

When you find a tender spot……this means the muscle tissue is tight……press on the tender spot using the hand-on-hand technique, while at the same time doing the press-hold-move technique by flexing your foot up and down as you press.

You will feel the muscle flexing under your fingertips as you press and flex your foot up and down.

The muscle should get less tender as you press and flex your foot up and down. After 30 seconds or so on a single spot, move to another tender spot and do the same motion. You can return to tender spots you've already worked later and work them some more if they are still tender.

Often you will find the tissue closest to your knee, and the tissue closest to your ankle are the most tender……and need more than one round of pressing and flexing. Sometimes 3 or 4 rounds are required……with breaks in-between for your hands to rest a bit.

B. Bottom of Foot Release -

As you just did for technique A, sit in a chair or lie on your back to what follows.

Take the foot experiencing pain and rest it on your opposite thigh or knee just like your were crossing your leg in normal life.

Rest the side of your foot and ankle on your thigh so the bottom of your foot is accessible for you to grab with your thumbs.

Press your thumbs into the muscle tissue on the bottom of your foot……from the front of your heel bone to the ball of your foot……and notice any spots where the tissue is tender. Remember, tender tissue is inappropriately tight tissue that needs to be released.

Now, do the press-pull-release technique on each tender spot. This is described in detail on the the techniques page. Work on each one 30 seconds, then move to another one.

Take a break whenever your thumbs get tired. There is not rush, take your time with this.

You can also do the press-hold-move technique on this same area while you flex your toes and hold on one spot.

Do at least 2 more rounds on the bottom of your foot before moving on.
