An alternative approach to hallux limitus
from Podiatry Management
Hallux limitus is a very common and painful condition which affects the 1st metatarso-phalangeal joint. The prevailing view of this entity is that it is a degenerative process that proceeds over time to progressive loss of motion and increase in pain with associated walking disability. This article will examine this not in the classic sense of a degenerative process, but rather one of repetitive daily trauma, with the inflammation and bone proliferation being part of a daily "repair" process. Interestingly, it relates in large part to chronic muscular inhibition of the peroneus longus.
