Recently, I have been working on improving my feet. One device that a mentor of mine recommended was toe spacers. I was skeptical at first because I did not think wearing toe spacers could impact the functioning of my feet. To my surprise, wearing toe spacers has helped me align my toes correctly, which made it easier to walk further distances and at greater speeds. Wearing them consistently, I have achieved more balance and can balance on various surfaces outside without trouble. I began walking around my neighborhood on rocks, stones, walls, etc., and have been doing these activities with greater ease. This post will be short but will explain the purpose of toe spacers and identify other benefits from this incredibly therapeutic device. 

So, how do toe spacers work? I will be using Transform Rehabilitation’s article “Spread Em’: The Importance of Toe Spacers” for the following information. They explain that your feet take a beating every day. This can be based on poor shoes that squish your toes together and shift their natural position or walking terribly for prolonged periods in the incorrect position. Most people do nothing to correct the beating their feet go through each day. Toe spacers conform to your toes and separate your toes (so they do not overlap). This releases pressure in your entire foot and attempts to return your feet to proper alignment, which can make things like walking easier and reduce pain in your foot. The spacers claim to help stretch the feet and position your feet to build muscle in areas you do not typically use to reestablish proper foot functioning.

When should you wear them? Start with at least 15 minutes and slowly build your way up. At first, I began using toe spacers whenever I spoke to friends, read, played video games, or watched TV. I did not feel too much pain with toe spacers, so I immediately did about an hour. Stay attuned to your body and how you feel. Keeping this in mind will tell you how long you should wear the device. Once you get more comfortable with the device, you can begin walking in them. I wear socks and sandals with the device in between my toes and walk for about 30-45 minutes. It helps me walk better, and my feet have been showing improvements in strength. After walking and wearing them for prolonged periods, you can begin sleeping in them. This is not a step I have reached yet, but I am attempting to do this because it will be fantastic for my feet. Remember to wear them for as long as they are comfortable and slowly adapt to longer periods. 

The benefit addressed in the article is that you will have less foot and toe pain. It can also help treat any deformities or conditions that impact the health of the feet. It will help you create natural arch support that helps keep the feet, knees, hips, backs, and body properly aligned. If you are standing and walking correctly, it will reduce unnecessary inflammation, tightness, or pain throughout the whole body. A better arch makes it easier to maintain balance and avoid any injuries. It will also stop your feet from over pronation, leading to fewer ankle sprains since your foot is balanced. If your foot is better aligned, it improves the blood flow to these areas, improves circulation throughout the whole body, allows you to fight foot tightness optimally, and helps you recover from any injury. The toe spacers restore proper bone structure to these areas, resulting in impacts felt throughout the entire body. Since your foot balances you for the majority of the day, having better feet can have significant improvements that I promise you will be able to notice. Wearing this device over time will continue to improve your foot, and at some point, you will have the best possible foot health that would be revolutionary for your life.

Take the initiative to purchase the toe spacer device as it can lead to various benefits. The device has been incredible for me, so I hope you can give your body the same feeling!
