In October of 2023, my husband Danny injured his foot while training for his Krav Maga black belt test.  After 9 years of training and 10+ months of targeted test preparation, Danny severely jammed the 2nd and 3rd toes on his right foot less than 2 weeks before his big test.  

Two weeks is not enough time to heal a joint injury, but rescheduling the test wasn’t an option so we had to get creative.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing how his care team, (Elementals Massage and the amazing doctors at TruRoots Health Center), were able to help him recover enough to take his test.  Spoiler Alert:  HE PASSED!

We’ll be looking at what a jammed toe is, how Danny’s specific injury manifested, and the techniques used to help him recover.
