Dear Tom: For years I've read and saved articles in Yoga International by you but I wonder if you could help me with this one.
I?m writing to you in a sort of a desperation call. I?m sure it?s over use syndrome but what's a good way of going about healing my sesamoiditis under my left big toe. It could be because of my Ashtanga jumps, which I've stopped and it still hurts. I have done some research on the net but Yoga Teachers have to use the balls of their feet, what should I do and not do to help it heal. The Podiatrist checked not broken bones or fractures but I need to do my yoga practice. Do you have any idea about this? I realize it could be a structural problem that manifests in the big toe, but nevertheless which things should I do and not do? Curling my toes in hurts.
Do you have the names of yoga therapists in my area (mid-peninsula Bay Area, San Mateo, CA) that could help me with this? I would really appreciate a short email from you or someone from your organization. Should I put my left big toe in a cast or at least a removable one? Thanks for your help in advance.
