Healthytoes Are Happy Toes

I was in my favorite fitness class last week when our instructor showed us a new move that required a lot of strength and flexibility from our toes. I pride myself on being one of the students who usually gets the challenging moves, but this time I couldn’t master it—my toes just didn’t have it in them! I talked to the instructor about it after class and she assured me it takes months of practice to build up the type of strength and flexibility needed. Since I only get to class once a week, I figured it would take me a year to work up to it. Then I got Healthytoes Toe Stretchers. The flexible silicone is contoured to fit the shape of your foot, and as soon as I put them on I could feel the gentle stretch. Unlike most workouts, with Healthytoes you don’t have to work up a sweat—you can slip the toe stretchers on while watching TV, relaxing in the tub, or curled up with a good book. The more you wear them the quicker you build strength and flexibility in your feet. When you get really good, you can try walking around with them on—trust me it’s a fun challenge! And you don’t need to be a fitness fanatic to fall in love with Healthytoes—they’re great for anyone who’s active. They can help with problems like bunions, hammer toe, sciatica, arches, plantar fasciitis, or varicose veins. After only a few days, my toes are already feeling stronger, and it may not be very Zen of me to say it, but I can’t wait to show off my fancy footwork in class! What’s your favorite way to stretch?

    Jennifer found that time with Healthytoes was all she needed to build strength in her feet and helped her master a new move at the gym. Others have found they could relieve foot pain and other podiatric ailments with this stretching and strengthening tool. Have you used them or something similar? What's your favorite stretching trick? Tell us here!

    Healthytoes started out as a yoga product but has crossed the lines into health & beauty, chiropractic, podiarty, fitness, pilates, sports medicine and othotics.

    We've also had many testimonials from consumers who claim Healthytoes have shrunk their bunions and eliminated the need for bunion surgery.

    After a lifetime of wearing flip flops all summer, out of the blue this year it seems to have really hurt my feet. All through the fall, my feet have been very achy and I've been told it's the start of bunions!! So for the past 5 days, I've been using healthytoes every day (sometimes twice a day) for about 10 minutes at a time. For the first time since last summer I don't have that throbbing pain in my feet - really! I'm a believer and think if you've got achy feet it's definitely worth a shot.

    For anyone who happens to be wondering, the third benefit I have found from Healthytoes is for exercise...specifically running and walking. Putting them on seems to battle back minor lower leg pain from running or walking. Shin splints, ankle stuff. Seems to stretch those areas really well.

    My father has recently starting losing sensation in his feet as he ages. He is having tests done, but this is something that I think he could try. If it helps to pull energy throughout his body to his feet, that just may do the trick. Can't hurt!! Thanks for the incredible variety of interesting products you bring before us Daily Grommet!!

    Kathy,

    Click on the "Details" tab between our video and the Story. It contains good sizing guidelines there. BTW, I just used them and had two guys try them too. Seeing new people try them reminded me that they really do create a stretch you can't otherwise get. But they feel odd at first...just try five or ten minutes and work up to more time. I do about 20-30 minutes.

    I LOVE these. They've been on my list forever, so I bought them with an xmas gift card. Unfortunately, I've been blessed with bunion-y feet and these are a treat to put on before I go to bed and prepare my feet for another round of booting...I got the small (size 8 feet) and they fit my husband's feet, so don't fret too much about size.

    I've watched the short video, read the description and all comments. Do you have anymore updated comments in 2010??

    Also, there is nothing mentioned about a warranty - does it exist directly with the product or thru Daily Grommet?

    I read where people had used these for tired feet, bunions and other problems, but no testimonial over any period of time.

    Could you advise on any of this?

    Hi Earlene,

    I'm the person in the video. I have continued to use Healthy Toes on and off since we discovered the product. I don't have any particular foot health issues so I use them when my legs and feet are tired or I have been wearing uncomfortable shoes all day. The stretch and relaxation they provide are really beneficial. My teenage son has been the surprising user of Healthy Toes. He is an athlete who was having a lot of leg pain during the soccer and lacrosse seasons. He ended up needing a pretty major hip surgery. But before that surgery he found using Healthy Toes gave him some needed relief. Hope this helps. And...we will stand behind the product if you don't find it working for you. Just return it to us if that happens.

    Are these stretchers any help for toes when you have a dropped foot and need to wear a moffo brace to keep your foot in a 90 degree angle to prevent contractures of the foot?
