Re: Right Pinky Toe

As a podiatrist, it makes me gnash my teeth when I hear "there is nothing you can do for a broken toe." Actually depending on the fracture, location and position, there are many things we can do. But first you need to see a podiatrist.

I am always concerned when people post and say "I don't have insurance." as if they can not be seen by a doctor with out it. Not True.

If you think about it, you need to assess your needs and wants. If you needed new tires because yours had worn out, you probably would get them.

You can try putting a small piece of foam or even gauze inbetween the 4th and 5th toes and taping them together. Be sure to start at the end of the toes and work up to the metatarsal-phalangeal joint. Wear a sandal or loose shoe. Ice and elevate your foot. See a podiatrist for further evaluation.

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.
