Detailed Instructions For
Toe Joint Pain Relief

Important - FEEL FREE TO ONLY WATCH THE VIDEOS AND FOLLOW ALONG WITH WHAT I DEMONSTRATE. The text is there to support the videos if you need more clarification.

Also, in the future you may only need to do one or two techniques to get instant toe joint pain relief, but you've got to go through the whole sequence to find your individual pain treatment. Pay attention to which of these specific techniques works best to relieve your toe joint pain.

A word about "neuromas." If you've been diagnosed with a neuroma or have noticed a little pea sized ball of nerves in the ball of your foot (a common location) then the techniques below may not be what you need. The most effective treatment for a neuroma that I have seen is to wear a little donut shaped cushion over the spot of the neuroma for a couple of months, so it is not aggravated when you put weight on your foot. That usually allows it to release over time and seems to work pretty well.

Step 1 - End Muscle Attachment Inflammation



Toe joint pain relief can often be simple if you are just shown the correct techniques. Be patient with yourself……take your time……and most likely you'll be pleasantly surprised with your results.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Toe Joint Release -

If the pain is primarily in the toe knuckle from some type of trauma, then this is a very important technique for you. If the injury has had sufficient time to heal and the knuckle is still painful to bend then do this Step 1A thoroughly and you should notice great results just from doing this one technique.

Bend your toe that is experiencing the toe joint pain in the way that makes it hurt. Notice where the tension is that restricts the movement of the joint. If it's on the top of the joint, we'll start there. If it's on the side of the joint, we'll start there, etc. You may have to take your fingers and manually bend the toe if you can't bend it without assistance.

Wherever the tension is, press on the tissue (which should be tender) and do the press-hold-move technique by opening and closing the joint with manual assistance of by itself. And then do some of the press-pull-release technique on the same spot to mix things up a bit.

If you are working on the sides of one of your toe knuckles, it can be a bit painful, but it's worth it. I know, I've had to do this to myself more than once over the years when I've jammed my toe. More than once it wouldn't seem to heal all the way without a little help, and this did the trick.

Take your time, and be willing to take a break and come back to work the toe joint. It will let go, but the toe knuckles can be a bit stubborn at times after they've been injured.

Once you've released one area, retest and notice if the tension is now felt in a different spot. Then repeat the steps above.

Keep retesting until there is no more tissue restricting the movement of the joint.

B. Bottom of Foot Release -

In a sitting position or lying on your back, grab the bottom of your foot with the four fingers from both hands with your thumbs on the top of your foot. Press your fingertips into the bottom of your foot to feel the tissue from the ball of your foot all the way down to about an inch from your heel bone. Notice any particularly tender spots.

Now flex the painful toe back and forth, or manually move it back and forth with one hand, while you press into the bottom of your foot to find the muscle that moves when you move your toe. Feel the whole length of the muscle you found on the bottom of your foot. The ones near the ball of your foot tend to be short. The muscles in the belly of the ball of your foot tend to be a bit longer.

Are any of the muscles you found tender when you press on them? If yes, then do the press-hold-move technique and the press-pull-release technique on any tender tissue.

I do think fingertips are the best tool to release these muscles, but if you have a hard time, try the tennis-ball-press technique with a tennis ball or even a golf ball to get those tight muscles to release.

C. Top Of Foot Release

This will be very similar to what you just did on the bottom of your foot.

Sitting in a chair or lying on back, grab your foot with both hands - thumbs on the top of your foot, fingertips on the bottom of your foot.

Flex your painful toe up and back toward your shin bone either by itself or manually assisted by pulling it up and down with one of your hands. Feel the muscles in the top of your foot that cause your toe to do this motion. Notice if any of them are tender when you press on them.

Do the press-hold-move technique and the press-pull-release technique on any tender spots until they release.

Step 2 - Stop Nerve Pathway Irritation



The nerves that innervate and govern your big toe joint area originate in the sections of your spinal column that make up your lower back and hips. We want to make sure those nerves aren't being yanked on along the way down and causing your big toe joint pain, since that alone could be its cause.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Passive Low Back Stretch -

This will be in the video I'll be making, but until then……

This stretch ideally has you comfortably lying on your back with your low back hanging off the edge of some pillows or cushions, with your buttocks resting on the floor, and the soles of your feet pulled up toward your buttocks and pressed together.
The goal is to get some gentle……and I do mean gentle traction on your back.

Here's how we'll do it:

The goal is to have your upper body supported by the cushions as you lie on them, with your low back hanging off the edge and your buttocks touching the floor……

So take the cushions off your couch or all the pillows off your bed and place them on the floor so you can lie comfortably flat on them. The stiffer the cushions the better. You want them to squish down to about 6 inches thick when all your body weight compresses them.

Position your body on the cushions so your low back hangs off the edge of the cushions and your buttocks touches the ground with some of your body weight.

Pull your feet toward your hips and put the soles of your feet together, so your knees are now hanging out to the side in mid-air.

Take a couple of soft pillows and shove them under the sides of your legs to support them, but allowing for a gentle stretch of your inner thighs is good.

Once you are comfortable, stay in this position for about 5 minutes. Do take the time to make sure you can comfortably relax in this position. It's time well spent.

After about 5 minutes,gently pull the pillows out from under your thighs……
bring your knees together and put your feet flat on the floor……
And now gently roll your entire body to the side to get off the pillows.
Take your time getting up as you may be a bit stiff in certain areas after this stretch.
Feel free to walk around for a couple of minutes before doing the next stretch.

B. Reclined Hip Stretch -

This will be demonstrated best in the video I'll be making, but until that's made……

Lie on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Cross one leg over the other so your ankle is resting on the knee of the other leg. Now, with one hand grabbing the ankle that is resting on your knee and your other hand grabbing the knee of that same leg, pull that leg toward your chest.

You will feel this pull on all the muscles in your buttocks. Pull on your leg, then let go a bit, pull again, relax a bit, and you'll feel the muscles stretch a bit each time you do this. Do this for a minute or so.

Do the same thing on the other side. Then go back to the first side. Alternate sides a few times and you'll notice improvement as you return again to either side and stretch it.

C. Seated Hip Stretch -

Sit on the floor with one leg bent at a 90 degree angle in front of you, and the other leg at a 90 degree angle behind you. Lean forward over your front shin and notice that you'll feel a stretch deep in your buttocks. You do NOT want to feel this stretch in your knee, so if you do feel it in your knee then move your foot higher or lower so you do not feel it in your knee.

Lean over your knee, then shin, then ankle and notice the different areas you feel being stretched. Most likely you'll feel the deepest stretch when you lean over you ankle.

Do this stretch on one side for a minute or so, then switch to the other side. Do three sets, at least, before moving on.

D. Hamstring Stretch -

Your hamstrings are the muscles on the back of your legs from the top of the back of your knees to the bottom of your buttocks. I'm going to show you a basic hamstring stretch with one important trick that makes all the difference.

While keeping your legs straight,
stand with your feet shoulder width apart
with your weight in the balls of your feet (that means in the front of your foot and not in your heals, but not in your toes either)
bend forward like you where trying to touch the floor with your fingertips,
go as far as you can with just your bodyweight pushing you down
When you reach the point where your body won't naturally go any further you should feel a bit of tension in your hamstrings.

NOW THE TRICK: Once you reach the point of bending over with only your bodyweight
FLEX YOUR THIGH MUSCLES (quadriceps)- the muscles that straighten your legs
While at the same pressing as hard as you can to reach the floor with your fingertips.

Keep your legs straight while you do this and don't cheat!
You should feel this all the way from your calf muscles up to your butt when done properly.

Press for a count of 5 to 10 seconds for each rep, do 3 sets of 3 reps per set.

Note: You cannot do these stretches too often. They could be your secret big toe joint pain treatment if you did them many times a day, everyday. If you did these every day, especially if you sit at a desk all day, it would be wonderful for your knee joint pain, lower back pain, calf pain, ankle joint pain, achilles pain, and big toe joint pain. These are great stretches for many of your body's aches and pains.

Step 3 - Restore Joint Muscle Balance



A. Front Of Lower Leg Release -

Now we're going to release a muscle in your lower leg that helps to raise your toes.

With your foot flat on floor take you fingertips and using the hand-on-hand technique to get a bit more pressure, press into the tissue in the lower half of your outer shin while you raise and lower your toes. Notice any tender tissue you find.

Now while still using the hand-on-hand technique, do the press-hold-move technique to release any tender tissue.

B. Back of Lower Leg Release -

Now we're going to release a muscle in your lower leg that helps flex your toes downward.

Sitting with your foot pulled up so it hangs off the edge of the seat of your chair (or with your foot on a bench that is pulled very close to you) place both of your thumbs on the back inner half of your lower leg.

Flex your toes downward (like you were trying to pick up a pencil with your toes) repeatedly, and feel into the inner half of the lower two-thirds of your calf with your thumbs to feel the muscles that do that motion.

Now to the press-hold-move technique on any tight tissue by flexing your toes closed and open while you press on any tender spots until they release.
