Thank you so much. I am using the Cluffy Wedge for the first time today and it is bringing me much relief. I have a 7 mm Morton’s Neuroma between the second and third webspace in my right foot. The Cluffy Wedge is taking the pressure off my toes and preventing the electric shocklike pain I was experiencing.
Thank you for inventing such an extraordinary device! My podiatrist recommended surgery, which I am avoiding like the plague, because I’ve heard that some patients have more pain after surgery. I’ve also heard that Morton’s Neuroma’s can return several years post surgery.
In using the Cluffy wedge it was not so much a decrease in pain but a marvelous increase in energy. I have complained about always being or feeling tired ever since since my early teens. I am currently 69 years old. Placing the wedge under my big toes brought improvement but when I double up on the wedges I had a “miraculous” transformation.
So, this is why everyone else could be so busy and I had to rest so frequently. The doubling up of the wedges on my right insole proved a bit too much so I removed one of the wedges off the right insole. I now use a double wedge on my left insole and a single wedge on my right insole. The tremendous increase in energy and the consistent increase in flexibility in both my feet is beyond words.
It’s amazing that something as small as a “wedge” under the big toe can make such a big difference in the way your foot feels while walking. As a mail carrier, how your feet feel while walking, is everything.
Amazing tool! I couldn’t propel prior to using the Cluffy Wedge®. There is now less strain in the ball of my foot and it is now possible to jog, walk, and hike on an incline with less sensitivity on my first metatarsal head.”
I am a runner with an active marathon and ultra-marathon schedule. Dr. Clough has been my Podiatrist for a number of years and has kept me running without interruption. I have been using the Cluffy Wedge® for the last several years and they are an integral part of my injury prevention program.
I am a busy operating-room nurse. I am on my feet all day on hard, concrete floors. As a result, I have suffered from severe heel pain. I have tried everything from custom orthotics to over-the counter insoles. They would all help a little, but nothing ever really brought me relief …(from) my plantar fasciitis and functional hallux limitus. Since wearing the Cluffy Wedge® over the last 18 months, I have seen an 80% improvement in my heel pain.
After working hard for 57 years to stay fit, (yup…I’m one of those Baby Boomers) my feet just gave out on me seemingly overnight. I could hardly walk and almost fell down when getting out of bed. Dr. Clough showed me how my big toe joints were not being fully flexed because of a hitch in the first joint. After using the Cluffy® in both my everyday shoes and my racquetball shoes and adjusting my walk/ stride, I had relief almost immediately and I am now pain free in the balls of my feet and back on my game. I can now play racquetball seven times a week for up to three hours; then it is fatigue that stops me- not my feet!
My name is Dr. Jeff Schutt. I am a chiropractor who specializes in sports performance. I also coach track and field at Aurora Christian High School in Aurora, Illinois. I performed an informal study utilizing the Cluffy Wedge product with a group of my track athletes and kids in a P.E. class to see if the wedge would indeed help with improving their running times. What I found was that on the average, the times of the athletes improved.
I observed that the athletes who improved their times the most had non-painful structural faults that the Cluffy Wedge helped correct. The athletes suffering from tendonitis, shin splints, etc, also improved but their pre-existing pain levels did not allow them to progress as well. Over time the Cluffy Wedge also helped to relieve these symptoms.
I have had pain in my big toe for the last three years. I went to my doctor and had it xrayed and was told it was wear and tear and nothing could be done. I then went to see a podiatrist who recommended the Cluffy wedge and it has made a tremendous difference to the pain in my toe and I can now walk normally.
I have bilateral bunions and the one on my right foot was making walking painful. I attended a foot and ankle course and was educated about the Cluffy Wedge. I was given some to try. Despite some skepticism initially, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I had a significant decrease in pain and was able to resume my daily walks without any pain at all! Amazing! A great product that I’ll be telling my patients about. Thank you!!
