As a parent you want the best for your children. It’s difficult to see them in pain – especially when it’s foot pain keeping them from running at recess or playing on their favorite sports team.

Have you heard of turf toe? Although common among those who play football, baseball, soccer, and basketball; as well as dancers, gymnastics and wrestlers, you don’t have to be an athlete to experience this foot problem.
