toes curl

Question: Is there a "best"exercise for toes that want to curl when walking

Thank you for your input.

Answer: This curling is most likely due to tone, and there is not an exercise that will necessarily maintain reduced tone thought you can try exercises to strengthen/stretch your toes like these at https://www.saebo.com/blog/exercises-help-fix-curled-toes-stroke/ . You might consider a foot orthotic, but you should visit with someone who is experienced in fitting/finding the right orthotic for your foot to make sure it is helping extend the toes and not contributing to them curling. You can view various types of foot orthotics you can discuss with your foot doctor, therapist or orthotist in Stroke Recovery Tips at https://www.stroke-rehab.com/support-files/strokerecoverytipsaugust2013.pdf.
