Re: pain in the big toe (great hallux)

Where are you located? I saw the pain management doctor and he wants to do a lumbar sympathetic block on me. I then went back and saw my DPM and he got mad cause I was asking him why my toe was so red and swollen so he walked out without answering anything at all. I plan to call my insurance for a 2nd opinion this coming week, but I can barely walk now...I'm walking on the side of my foot. I am afraid that I am going to end up messing it up having to do it cause I can't walk normally anymore. I don't know what to do at this point...should I start using my crutches again? Again thank you for your help.

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.
