Waiting to see foot doctor for clawed toes and pain in big toe but now feels like walking on a marble so walk on outside of foot causes knee pain?

Injured arch & began walking on outside edge of my foot for five weeks. Foot changed shape, pinkie became a bit claw toe.Reversible by stretching?

Compensation.: You are exhibiting a phenomena called "compensation". You are under using certain parts of your body while, at the same time, over using others. This can be quite damaging if allowed to continue. An immediate exam and evaluation is necessary to determine just what was injured and how to return it to normal function. In short, your biomechanics are off. ...Read more
