  • Avoid high heels, wear shoes with ample toe space 
  • Seek help from a podiatrist

What kind of help can I get?

  • A podiatrist can advise on proper footwear
  • A podiatrist can prescribe medical insoles
  • A podiatrist can perform foot mobilisation to free up restriction of the joints
  • Photobiomodulation Therapy to reduce swelling and pain 
  • Surgery might be needed if symptoms still show after conservative methods

How long till it recovers?
