Screaming Toe pose is the greatest stretch for sore toes, feet and ankles. It can be pretty excruciating, so please take it a few breaths at a time. It’s particularly effective for runners but also for any athletes who wear shoes for their training. You can practice it as often as you need to. The best times are after a workout or in the evening after a long day. Try to maintain a straight spine by lining up your ears, shoulders and hips.
