WHY DOES STUBBING YOUR TOE HURT SO MUCH?

WHY DOES STUBBING YOUR TOE HURT SO MUCH?

Have you ever wondered why stubbing your toe is extremely painful making you shout HOLY SHITAKE MUSHROOMS! Well, we are hear to let you know...

There are literally tons of nerve endings in your feet called nociceptors. They are highly sensitive and when we stub our toes we are over stimulating them. These nerves are constantly feeding info to our brain.

The nerves in our feet contribute to what some call our 'sixth sense' which is referred to as ‘proprioception’ and it includes the sense of position and movement of our limbs, the senses of muscle force and effort, and the sense of balance. This phenomenal feedback from our nerves enables us to carry out our everyday activities, without thinking about it. So thank your lucky feet for all they do for you day in and day out.
