2. Instant Relief

The sudden pain that comes with toe cramps can be surprisingly intense, but instant relief is possible with self-care measures. Immediately stop any physical activity at the first sign of cramping to avoid additional injury. Stretch the affected toes, gently rubbing the cramped muscles and holding the extension until the spasms subside. For a deeper stretch, fully extend the leg and carefully pull the top of the affected foot toward the head Apply a warm compress on tense or tight muscles, and use an ice pack if the toes are tender or sore.
