Big toe pain can strike at any time. Maybe you feel it when you stand up for the first time in the morning. Maybe after a good workout or at the end of the day your toe throbs. Or maybe as soon as you slide your foot into a shoe that normally fits your toe screams in pain. Regardless of if your big toe pain is an annoyance or if it’s keeping you from activities you love, you should get assessment and treatment from your trusted podiatrist. There's no reason to put up with big toe pain, especially as it can reduce your mobility and disrupt your life.
For those of you asking "Why does my big toe hurt?", there’s a wide range of causes from calluses to bunions or injuries.
