Toe Numbs During Work Out
When your toe numbs during work out, the primary suspect is your working shoes. This is possibly due to the bad design of your shoes or it lacks cushioning. Work out requires constant activity and pressure to the feet especially hopping, bouncing and jogging.
According to podiatrist Marc Mitnick, one major contributor of toe numbness is the foot condition called Morton’s neuroma. According to Wikipedia, this condition is a benign neuroma of an intermetatarsal plantar nerve, most commonly of the third and fourth intermetatarsal spaces.
If you have Mortons neuroma, it is adviced that you use custom orthotics and put it inside your shoes. Orthotic provides extra cushioning and absorbs pressure and impact instead of the feet absorbing it. If your condition is severe, the last resort is surgery.
Other consideration of having a numb toe is the way your toes are hitting against the narrow end of your boots or shoes called the toe box. To prevent having the problem in the first place, purchase shoes or boots that are well designed and cushioned.
