Hallux (Great Toe) Rigidus

Your big toes help you maintain balance

SuperUser Account 0 120 Article rating: No rating

Your big toes help you maintain balance.  They receive a huge amount of stress each time you walk, stand, squat, or climb stairs.  People with degenerative arthritis may develop a condition called hallux rigidus, meaning a “stiff big toe.”  Hallux rigidus occurs when the joint at the base of the big toe wears down and makes movement difficult.  Hallux rigidus is a progressive condition, and over time, the toe may become very stiff.  Early treatment is important, and may help prevent future surgery.
