My big toe joint started an arthritic process started from an injury about 20 years ago, which was not properly treated. Fortunately, pain only experienced nowadays with flexion of the joint. Telemark turn puts the joint into extension, and I am lucky enough that haven't experienced pain in this motion.

Long story short, in not properly tending to the injury, I will be suffering the consequences for the remainder of my days.

This is great advice! I am a physical therapist assistant and my wife is a doctor of physical therapy. Toe yoga and trying to move your big toe while not moving small toes and vice versa (move just small toes together while leaving big toe stable) As well as toe crunches
