Hi Coach Nancy,
Thank you for your comment! Hate to hear its more common than not as it is quite painful. I read somewhere about taping toes for support but I believe it was more for when the toes curl under another toe. I will definitely look to a professional for better ideas.

Thanks!

Hi NIKEIT2011,

This is more common than you think. In fact one of my colleagues here at SparkPeople suffers from this on both feet and it can be quite painful--many times it's a genetic predisposition. My suggestion would be to see a sports podiatrist (preferably one who treats runners) and see what suggestions he/she may have for you.

Coach Nancy

As I have started walking again and moving forward and adding a bit of waddling (very slow jogging), I have noticed something---On my left foot, the toe next to my big toe curls under. I have been sized so I know thats fine. I have even switched socks thinking it was the sewing.

Any ideas on how to keep the toe from curling under---its quite painful after about 1.5miles out.
I asked this in another place here but hoping more people will read this (thanks judi! )

thanks team!
