Marble pickups

  1. Put some marbles, dice, or small smooth rocks on the floor next to a cup.
  2. Sit in a chair, and use the toes of your affected foot to lift up one item from the floor. Then try to put the item in the cup.
  3. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
  4. It's a good idea to repeat these steps with your other foot.
