Crippled toes

by Mary
(Shell Knob)

Question: I had a stroke three years ago, complete use of my arm and hand but my foot has become very crippled with twisted toes and foot pain on the bottom of my toes. Was fitted for a brace and am wearing but the pain on the bottom of my foot is so bad that it affects my walking ability. Any suggestion as what to do?


:Answer: Sometimes patients are fitted with a brace for the foot and ankle but actually may need something specifically geared toward the toes or bottom of the foot such as a toe crest or metatarsal pad. You can learn more at this link:
