Using My Toes As Dressing Aids

Hi everyone! Here is an excerpt from my upcoming book about living in a body cast for two years. I had a full body cast (spica) that covered my entire left side from chest to ankle. Enjoy!

When I needed to get dressed, I would pick my clothing up with my toes. In addition to helping out with my toe muscles, this made for a great experience. I did not have to rely on anyone or anything else. It took time, but so what. Life isn’t too rushed while living in a body cast.

For socks, I would pick up my sock by grabbing a hold of it with my toes. I would slide the upper portion (opening) of the sock between my big toe and next toe. At that point, I would slide the sock over my other foot’s toes. I slowly would pull it down over my heel. Then, I would raise my heel and slide it on the bed. That way, my sock would slide over my heel and foot. After having my sock cover my heel and sole, I would pull it up with my good foot. There really wasn’t much room to pull it up over my leg since my cast started at my ankle.

I never thought about using my toes as a dressing aid before being in a body cast. (Remember…this was back in the late 1970’s. Now, you can probably watch YouTube videos on this topic. Or, approach an Occupational Therapist for insight.) It’s amazing what the mind comes up with when needed. This task sure gave me a greater appreciation for my toes and feet. They’re marvelous little tools!
