About Toe Stretching

It is ideal for 5 toes to move and spread like 5 fingers. Genki-kunTM One-Step is very useful for those who have a bunion or hammer toe deformity without pain, but have difficulties spreading toes. The following are some stretching samples:
** Pulling only the big toe (Fig. A) Fig. A

Fig. B

Fig. C
Since this is an imbalanced stretch, the other 4 toes don't get as flexible as the big toe. And it may also cause abnormality on the little toe side. It is temporarily effective for those with a bunion; however, it should be avoided doing it for a long term considering the balance with the little toe.

** Spreading both big and little toes (Fig. B)
This will lead to the better results than Fig. A. Normally, those with a bunion end up with a bunionette (the little toe bending inwards) deformity as well, and this exercise is effective for reducing both deformities.

Stretch exercise using both hands
Genki-kunTM One-Step is created from this principle; stretch using both hands. This allows you to make the muscles between toes flexible by holding both big and little toes with your hands and then gently spreading them out.


1. Pressing Exercise

  • Helps improve the blood circulation by stimulating each toe (Fig. D)
  • Helps prevent varicose veins
  • Helps revitalize toe nails
2. Walking Exercise
  • Helps stretche the Achilles' tendon
  • Helps Make ankles flexible
Correction of walking
   Makes you walk redistributing your weight to the big toe side when wearing Genki-kunTM One-Step (which avoids you to put your weight to the little toe side). And this corrects you to put your weight into the right area for walking.
