Northwest Foot & Ankle
Dr. Ray McClanahan, DPM, of Northwest Foot & Ankle has a wealth of information regarding foot problems and foot health in general. If you've ever had questions about hammer toes, bunions, arch support, or other foot specific concerns, we encourage you to visit his collection of articles.
Designed by Dr. Ray, Correct Toes help the foot rehabilitate from the negative effects of conventionally shaped footwear. The device, made of soft, flexible silicone, encourages the toes back into their natural alignment found at birth. With progressive and consistent use while active and weight bearing, toes align and feet strengthen, restoring your foot’s original position and function.
Realigning the major joints of your body through exercises, Egoscue works by returning the body to its original blueprint—its standing normal anatomical position. Continued misalignment of the body can lead to your body compensating by transferring workload to other parts of the body. Over time, this can lead to pre-mature wear and tear and possibly pain. Similarly to realigning your toes, realigning your entire body allows for more natural movement.
