For all you gals out there who are looking at My Grandsons - a little reminder
Tuesday’s Tool’s of the Trade - Health/Yoga
As part of my foot rehab my therapist recommended I get some toe spreaders. Being in a boot for so long combined with having an injured toe for so long the joints in my feet and toes had really seized up to protect the injury. I wasn’t actually sure what toe spreaders did or what ones to get so I researched the options and benefits online. Apparently they help to realign the bones and soft tissue, stimulate circulation, increase flexibility, strength and so much more. I had never really put too much thought into my toes or how stiff and stuck they were and the impact on my whole body alliance until my injury. Those that do yoga I’m sure have been instructed in a class to , “Spread your toes out on the mat or Open up the joints in your feet”. Even when I would think it in my mind my toes never spread open on my met! One of the yoga DVD’s I do by Eoin Finn he makes a comment how “Unfortunately most of us have clubs for feet.” Yep that’s me and if these could help then I’m in! I picked up a small size set of Joy-A-Toes and have been using them for the past few weeks starting at 10 minutes a day and working up to 30 minutes while I sit at my desk working. I already see such a huge difference! The first day I thought there was no way I was going to get those between my toes and it was very challenging the first week but my toes are actually starting to open up. I can wiggle ALL my toes, not just my big toes, and my toes are no longer all crammed together, it’s small but there is some space between them! I’m not at the point where I could wear them walking around but I’m working towards that goal and I know if I keep at it I will no longer have “clubfeet”.
