How do we treat a painful, stiff big toe joint?
Watch below and listen to Justin and Blake explain the management of 1st MPJ (big toe) Osteoarthritis. At Achieve Podiatry in New Lambton, Newcastle, we see a lot of people who have tried numerous therapies for this condition. By and large, there is improvement with footwear, movement, mobility and strength programming. However, there are times where reducing the peak force through the joint can help.
We would typically make an orthotic with a Mortons extension which always dramatically improves and function. We make a range of orthotics here at Achieve in Newcastle and mostly can make them on the day of the appointment.
