YogaToes are designed to stretch, spread and exercise the toes to realign foot structure, prevent and correct common foot problems and strengthen the feet.
The product may be helpful for people who spend much of the day on their feet or wearing restrictive footwear.
Practising yoga regularly can be just as effective as YogaToes when it comes to stretching the toes and improving foot problems; still, yogis and orthopaedic surgeons alike tout the benefits of YogaToes as an easy way to help care for your feet.
YogaToes are ergonomically designed toe separators, sold in pairs and made out of a safe, BPA- and latex-free malleable plastic. The design is meant to work the muscles of the feet by stretching the toes apart from one another and away from the ball of the foot, increasing circulation and realigning foot posture in the process.
Foot Pain Relief
YogaToes are advertised as being effective in combating foot pain caused by tight, restrictive footwear, extended time standing or walking or strenuous sports activity. It endorses the benefits of YogaToes to treat and prevent mild corns or bunion pains due to such activities. Frey also notes, however, that YogaToes would not be effective in treating more serious foot conditions, injuries or deformities.
Frey also states that YogaToes are ideal for foot-strengthening exercises. Individuals can benefit simply by wearing YogaToes – the product completes the stretching and strengthening work on its own.
Active complements to such foot-strengthening exercises include yogic techniques like spreading the toes, massaging the feet and spreading the fingers between the toes to intensify the stretch.
They are usually worn while a person is relaxing (sleeping, watching TV, etc.) and are said to increase the flexibility and length of the toes, which can help relieve pain from foot conditions like arthritis, gout, bunions, claw toe, bone spurs, plantar fasciitis, cramps, hammertoes, Morton’s neuroma, metatarsalgia and more. Additionally, toe separators can improve circulation, realign joints and straighten bent toes, which can also help with foot pain.
