“Dr. Janet Travel, who the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, and Professor Emeritus of Medicine at George Washington University, was also a leading expert on the Morton’s Toe (Long Second Toe) and how it could cause pain almost anywhere in the body. She wrote and taught for four decades that a Morton’s Toe, could cause, aches and pains all over the body including back, hip, knee, leg foot and ankles problems”.
Schuler also said
” In her most important book Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: the trigger point manual, written with Dr. David Simmons , she showed how a Morton’s Toe (Long Second Toe) could be the real cause of not only the problems listed above but also of fibromyalgia, sleep disturbances, and TMJ. . She felt it was so important to understand how the Morton’s Toe could cause pain that at the age of 89, she made a video tape to teach other physician about it and how treat it. ”
A “Morton’s Toe” means having either one or both of two abnormal, inherited conditions of the first metatarsal bone of the foot.
1. The first abnormal condition, and the most noted one, that can cause Morton’s Toe is where your first metatarsal bone is shorter than your second metatarsal bone.
2. The second condition is when your first metatarsal bone is not as stable as it should be, and as a result, has too much motion. This is known as “Hypermobility of the First Metatarsal Bone.”
Dr. Travell knew either one of these problems could be the cause of why you got out of bed hurting everyday.
