General Application: Provides stretch and flexibility to toes and forefoot area.
Medical Application: Reduction of tightness and strain to toe and forefoot area. May alleviate conditions of bunions and metatarsalgia.
How it Works: To be used during inactivity, the Toe Flexor includes four vertical foam bars that stretch each toe away from the one next to it.
Design Theory: Made from high quality foam. Material is soft enough to provide comfort, yet firm enough to stretch toes by creating space between.
Medium (Moderate Stretch)
Large (Maximum Stretch)
Medical Definition: Pain in the metatarsal region of the foot caused by conditions of "fallen metatarsal arch", "ball of foot" pain, Morton's Neuroma (irritated nerve endings), and bursitis.
Causes: Repetitive strain, excessive running and/or poor biomechanics may lead to metatarsalgia.
Symptoms: Pain in the forefoot region, especially felt when walking or running.
Recommended Treatment: Seek evaluation from a medical professional. Rest and keep weight off of foot as much as possible. Stretch the calf muscles (soleus, gastrocnemius). Use metatarsal pads to provide a comfortable lift to the central metatarsal heads.
