Toe Pain

January 12, 2014

Rajeshree asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:

Dear Guru,

I have a pain at the base of my big toe. What should I do? It has been there for some time (1 month) and has gotten worse in the last few days.

Best Regards

Hi Rajeshree

Sounds like something’s up with 1st metatarsal joint – this is bunion territory or maybe a bit of joint surface change.

Change what your wearing on your feet, take anti inflams (if you can) and improve your 1 leg balance.
