- Consider an MRI that you can get every few years if needed?
- Try cross training with sports that do not need so much toe bend.
- Experiment with New Balance 928 or Mizuno Wave Nirvana to limit motion.
- Experiment with Carbon Graphite plates (like Otto Beck)
- Learn to spica tape
- Get orthotics to off weight the big toe joint
- 3 times a day do something to produce an anti-inflammatory effect.
- Good luck!!
