Fractured toe healing process

Hi my name’s Roseanne. I fractured my toe about 5 weeks ago. I’m not worried about it, but I just want to know if it is normal that I can’t bend it yet. I’m not in pai and can walk on it. I just can’t bend it yet. Thanks very much.

    Hello and thank you for your question. The plantar fascial spur tells me your plantar fascia is tight and lacks elasticity. This can be addressed with daily myofascial release using a golf ball or RAD Roller (www.radroller.com) The spurring of the TNJ tells me your foot is not stable and is most likely over pronated or flat. This over-pronation can start to stress your ankle joint as well which is why you have pain in your ankle. If you have not tried inserts in your shoes I suggest looking at Aetrex Lyncos (www.aetrex.com) which are a great way to start to control. If you note that you need more control then you can speak to your Podiatrist about getting custom orthotics. I hope this helps!
