How to Beat Big Toe Pain


Pain in your big toe is a real pain in the butt.

Hurts to walk, or move quickly and sometimes just wearing shoes hurts.

I smashed my right big toe up against a dumb bell in a an odd, how -is-that-possible kind of move just as I was launching my Above The Rim Again project.

So, I had to get it under control as fast as possible and, most importantly, not re-injure it or my project could be sidelined for a while.

There are a lot of viewpoints on how to treat a big toe sprain or sometimes called “turf toe”. In the video, I show you what I am doing to help my sprain heal. It’s coming along very well by the way so I’m not too concerned about it.

Have you ever had big toe pain? How did you solve it?
