Hallux valgus

What is a hallux valgus?

A hallux valgus is a very common injury to toes. A condition in the hallux valgus can literally be translated. The hallux is your big toe and when the toe is in valgus the toe is pointing outwards (laterally).

As described above, the big toe is facing outward in a hallux valgus. It is actually a deviation from the big toe. During this deviation, the metatarsal protrudes just below the big toe. This nodule is called bunion. The bunion can be very painful and irritating, especially when wearing shoes. Skin irritation and joint inflammation can result from the bunion.

Cause hallux valgus

Hallux valgus can be a birth defect, but it doesn't have to be. It is often a condition in the foot. The foot is then too far inward, like a sagging foot. In practice, however, more women (90%) are affected by this problem than men. Women's shoes are often too narrow, especially with heels. There is too much pressure on the forefoot.

Hallux valgus symptoms

  • Pain just behind the big toe (bunion)
  • The big toe points out (lateral)
  • Shoes are difficult to fit
  • The bunion can be red
  • Pain in the joint of the big toe

To treat

A hallux valgus is easy to treat. However, treatment is not always necessary. Some would like to have the hallux valgus treated because it doesn't look very nice, but when pain is not present it doesn't necessarily have to be treated.

With mild aches, good shoes can do a lot. An alternative is to passively spread the toe. This can easily be done by purchasing a silicone toe spreader or using a light brace.

  1. For a silicone toe spreader, where the toe is spread passively, the easiest choice is the Orliman Softgel or the Halux Valgus Toe Spreader. Easy to use and easy to wash.
