Seated 1st MTP Extension Mobilization

  • HOW: In a seated position, cross the involved leg and foot over the other leg’s knee with your ankle hanging unsupported.

With the other hand, gently pull your big toe straight out as you move it up and down for the prescribed amount of reps. 
  • FEEL: You should feel a gentle stretch in your big toe joint. 
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t move your foot, focus the movement only in your big toe.
