Re: big toe pain

That happened to me except it was a beer bottle that fell from the lower shelf of the fridge. It didn't fall far and was not that heavy but it obviously hit harder than I first realized. Over the course of the next few hours my toe also got all swollen and black & blue and really hurt. I ended up going to emergency and they had to drill a hole in the nail to relieve pressure of the blood building up under the nail. It did provide relief and eventually the toe nail came off. It took a full year for it to fully grow back. All has been fine for a couple of years now but it sure is an unpleasant experience. This pressure build up in my case happened within hours. Yours might not be the same thing but it is something else to consider.

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.
