Re: child born with crooked toes

When I see young children with this, I show the parents how to tape the toes so they grow straighter. I am not sure at 3 years old if it would help though. I use a bandaid and cut it in 1/2 lengthwise and weave it under and over so the toes are in alignment. Another old fashioned thing to do is find a podiatrist (usually someone older like me!) who can make a digital splint. But again it is possible your daughter will hate it and take it out.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
