Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
I did consider gout. However, there is no redness, swelling, heat, or tenderness at the toe. The pain is specifically related to the position of the toe and ankle or to pressure in a very specific spot on the top of the foot toward the ankle. That was the disturbing part to me. How something touching the top of my foot several inches away from my toe could make my toe hurt.
Over the past two weeks the discomfort has been lessening. I’m pretty sure I cranked my laces down on a tendon or nerve and bothered it good. Thanks for the help.
