Turf toe is a condition that’s caused by jamming the big toe or repeatedly pushing off the big toe forcefully as in running and jumping. Turf toe can also be the result of bending your big toe back beyond its normal limit, causing hyperextension of the toe. That hyperextension, repeated over time or with enough sudden force, can cause a sprain in the ligaments that surround the joint. While turf toe is commonly associated with football players who play on artificial turf, sports professionals or dancers, the malady can actually affect a variety of people.
The most common symptoms of turf toe include pain, swelling, and limited joint movement at the base of the big toe. If the injury is caused by a repetitive motion or event, the symptoms could develop slowly and gradually get worse over time. If the turf toe symptoms are caused by a sudden forceful motion, the injury can be painful immediately and worsen shortly thereafter. Sometimes when the injury occurs, a "pop" can be felt. Usually the entire joint is involved and toe movement is limited.
Good Feet’s line of arch supports and orthotics which feature a metatarsal rise are designed to provide relief from excess toe pressure including the “toe off” push of the big toe. Most customers have experienced reduction in pain, prevention or complete elimination of the pain and swelling associated with turf toe as a result of wearing Good Feet products enhanced with a metatarsal rise.
