WHAT IS THE

HALLUX RIGIDUS AND OUR APPROACH IN HOUSTON TX?


Fundamentally the Hallux is used to describe your big toe whereas rigidus as the name suggests means rigid or firmness. Therefore the term inflexibility of the big toe is due to the stiffness or firmness of the joint of your toe. This condition may cause aches in the joint of the toe or visibly on top of the big toe. The intensity of the pain increases upon motion such as walking, physical activities, or exerting any kind of pressure on the foot.

WHAT GIVES RISE TO THE CONDITION HALLUX RIGIDUS?


Much like other joint conditions Hallux Rigidus is caused due to stress or exertion on the joint while performing physical activities. The greater the strain on the joint the more likely you are to develop such a condition. However, this sort of condition occurs due to a structural abnormality of the foot. When a person performs intensive labor that exerts pressure on the joints such as an athlete who does extensive training including squatting can cause fatigue and depreciation of the joints. This wear and tear results in the wearing of the articular cartilage inducing friction between the motion of the bones. The inflammation just like arthritis leads up to the condition Hallux Rigidus.

HOW TO KNOW IF

YOU HAVE DEVELOPED HALLUX RIGIDUS?


The first and far most important symptom of any foot condition is pain. Whenever a certain joint or area of your foot begins to ache and prevent motion due to soreness it can be an alarming sign. The foot has different joints, and pressure areas that are affected due to excessive work done, injury, or other reasons; however, if your big toe is causing you excruciating pain especially while exerting force to walk, it could be the first sign of foot condition. More serious symptoms begin to develop over time such as

Decrease in the motion of the toe over time

– Callus or bumps appear on top of the big toe making footwear uncomfortable or causing irritation

Cold or damp weather aggravates the pain making the big toe joint stiff and difficult to move

– Inflammation of the toe

Hallux Rigidus is a condition in which symptoms intensify over time. What begins as a slight pain and irritation may gradually cause swelling, tenderness, inflammation, and stiffness. Altogether making it impossible to flex or move your toe. It is advised to seek proper care and attention from a specialist after detecting some of the earliest symptoms as it can help treat it much easier and quicker. The earlier stage of the condition is therefore known as Hallux Limitus as the joint is not yet completely rigid and stiff. The movement of the joint is ‘limited’ and therefore termed as ‘limitus’.

HOW IS

HALLUX RIGIDUS TREATED IN HOUSTON?


Although this type of condition is best treated by a professional, very often than not you may need a quick and temporary way to reduce the pain. It is best not to prolong the condition until it worsens. If the condition is serious it could require surgery.

Surgical methods

Some of the surgical methods used to treat Hallux Rigidus include a Cheilectomy, Osteomotony,  interpositional arthroplasty, toe implant or Arthrodesis. Depending on the severity and extent of the deformity of the toe our specialist will prescribe the most suitable way for treatment that requires minimal risk and most beneficial results.
