Toe stretch

Posted by Matt P on 5/21/05 at 16:18 (175436)

This is the last one, I promise.

I get a lot of soreness in my toes that feels as though my toes have been smushed all day in shoes that don't fit, even when I'm wearing shoes that do fit. A massage therapist friend of mine recommending stretching the toes apart by putting a finger inbetween each one and then just resting in that position... it's a good stretch for me, but I found it awkward to sit in that position for long.

Yesterday I took four corks from bottles of wine and shaved down the middle of two sides, so that they look like a Lincoln Log. I then placed these corks between my toes and held them there while I was taking a bath... it worked really well!

I purchased excellent toe stretchers from eneslow.com. As long as I use them I have no more toe pain. (Before I used them I had a lot of pain and burning in 3 of my toes)

Hopefully you enjoyed the wine, as well!!
