Tight big toe


Recommended Posts

My physio has noted that by walking 'funny' to avoid pain caused by an ankle injury earlier this year, I've also managed to tighten the bottom of my foot a bit. Particularly, my big toe is not as flexible as usual in dorsiflection. We think that as I slowly get more into class again, I'll regain some flexibility through releves, tendus, etc... and I'm doing some gentle massage as well. He's suggested that I ask for some gentle stretches for dorsiflection from my ballet teachers, but as we're still out for Easter break, I thought I'd ask here as well. Any suggestions?

Yep. Massage and 'Yoga-Toes'! :innocent:


This is a link to a product that you could purchase, or you can just use your fingers in the same manner:

Yep! Looks similar!!!! You really can just use your fingers though. But probably not under your desk..... :innocent:

Hee...... If I could do that *and* type, I'm sure I'd have crazy flexible metatarsals! :lol::innocent:
