Hallux Rigidus

    Hallux Rigidus

    This is the medical term for arthritis of the big toe. Hallux rigidus is a common cause of pain and bone spurs around the big toe.   Simple measures such as modified shoe wear and rigid inserts can alleviate the pain from this condition. If conservative measures fail, numerous surgical options exist, including simple bone spur resection, as well as partial great toe replacement or arthrodesis (fusion).
