Big toe pain can have many different causes, though arthritis is one of the most common. Preventing it from stiffening your digit and making it painful to walk is important for maintaining your mobility and independence. You may need an orthotic to help stabilize the big toe joints and reduce strain on them. Shoes with wide, deep toe boxes and stiffer soles also help relieve some of the pressure on the toe. You should avoid high heels or footwear without sufficient arch and ball of the foot support, since they can stress the digit. Some physical therapy exercises to help maintain your range of motion may also help.
