Hallux Rigidus
 

Hallux Limitus/ Rigidus is a condition that affects the joint at the base of the big toe. If you suffer from this condition, you will notice pain and stiffness in the big toe. The symptoms often worsen while walking, running or performing other exercises and when the weather is cold or damp. Additionally, individuals with this condition may notice swelling and inflammation around the joint. If the condition worsens, the big toe joint may become painful when at rest and bone spurs may develop. Often to lessen the pain, sufferers will begin to limp or otherwise alter walking mechanics, which can lead to pain in the ankles, knees, hips and lower back.

Technically a form of degenerative arthritis, Hallux Limitus/Rigidus can wear out the cartilage in the joint that it affects. It can be caused by improper alignment of the feet, trauma or genetic abnormalities in the foot structure.

 Treatments available for this condition include shoe modification, anti-inflammatory medication, orthotics, physical therapy and surgery. Contact us today to determine which treatment option might work best for you.
