Hallux Rigidus Treatment in Hurst, TX

Hallux Rigidus Treatment in Hurst, TX

Hallux rigidus is a condition involving the joint that connects the large toe to the rest of the foot. This form of degenerative arthritis inhibits the movement of the big toe, resulting in pain, trouble performing certain activities and inflammation.

Causes of Hallux Rigidus

This condition often runs in families and is caused by a genetic predisposition. Others develop hallux rigidus from occupations and sports, especially people who frequently must stoop or squat. An injury like a stubbed toe, rheumatoid arthritis and even gout can result in hallux rigidus as well.

Symptoms of Hallux Rigidus

Pain and the loss of articulation of the big toe are by far the most defining symptoms. However, if left untreated, hallux rigidus can develop into some more severe symptoms, including:

  • Pain during motion and rest
  • Bone spurs (and subsequent difficulty wearing shoes)
  • Inflammation of the joint
  • Pain that intensifies in cold and damp weather
  • Radiating pain in the hip, knee and lower back
  • Limping

Hallux Rigidus Treatment

There are two main treatment options with hallux rigidus, non-surgical and surgical. Though before any treatment can be administered, a diagnosis will have to be confirmed. To do this, a physical exam will be needed, during which a physician will inspect the range of motion of your big toe.

An X-ray will likely be performed as well to determine if there are bone spurs, and how advanced arthritis in the joint has become. Once hallux rigidus is confirmed, treatment can begin.

Non-Surgical Treatments

The goal of these treatment options is to eliminate or, at least, slow the progression of hallux rigidus.

Surgical Treatment

When all else fails, and hallux rigidus is non-responsive to other treatments, surgery is the next option. There are several surgical options available, each with specific benefits. It’s important to discuss your lifestyle, activity level and occupation (if physically demanding) with your physician to choose the surgical option that fits your needs.

While hallux rigidus is a condition you may not have heard before, it’s a common problem for many. Luckily, there are treatment options available to get you back to the things you want to do. Don’t let hallux rigidus stand in your way.
