  2. Stand far enough away from the table so that the elastic band or tubing is pulled tight.

  3. Point your right foot firmly to the left, pulling on the elastic band or tubing. Hold for 5 seconds.

  4. Relax your foot back to a straight position. Repeat this exercise 10 times.

  5. Do this exercise 3 times a day, or as instructed.
