Big Toe Joint Pain: Gel Products
Hi Dr. Blake,
Thanks for the heads up about the molds.
Can they be mailed to me?
If not, I think I will not keep them. The orthotics never worked for my inflamed metatarsal/hammer big toe. I have had good luck with
1. ‘gel socks’ from Dream Products: http://www.dreamproducts.com/neuropathy-therapy-socks-6863.html
These two items have been miraculously helpful along with eliminating most of my shoes except those that are wide toe boxes. I still do the taping you showed me, along with variations that I have developed to help the tendons in my foot.
Thanks for your kind assistance. I guess the bottom line is that we just have to keep trying things. I was very motivated to keep walking!
