Mobility of the first tarsometatarsal joint in relation to hallux valgus deformity: Anatomical and biomechanical aspects
from Foot & Ankle International
Hypermobility of the first tarsometatarsal (TMT 1) joint is suggested to be an important factor in the cause and progression of hallux valgus deformity. Hypermobility of the TMT 1 joint is tested clinically in the sagittal plane, but an important deformation also exists in the transversal plane: metatarsus primus varus.
