Spread Your Toes
There is a toe skill that I admire. Less you think I am kidding, I assure you that this is for real. If you are normal, you have already skimmed this post and looked at the photo.
Let me explain. Time after time, when I am patching feet, I ask the athlete to spread his or her toes. Usually this is when I am applying a figure eight patch between the toes, which I use to anchor a tape patch on the forefoot at the base of the toes. It is also important when trying to clean the skin or lance a blister between the toes. Yes, I consider this a toe skill – spreading your toes.
Sound easy? Try it and see how far you can spread your toes.
Truth be told, I have found few people that can really spread their toes. The toes in the photo belong to my granddaughter, Alyssa. Aren’t they great? See how far she can spread her toes? I love it.
When you are sitting around, reading, watching TV or a movie, taking in the sun, work on learning how to spread your toes. It really does help those of us who work on your feet.
