[edit] Discussion

  • Hallux rigidus (osteoarthrosis with restricted motion) is the second most common disabling deformity of the first metatarsophalangeal joint after hallux valgus.
  • The disability with hallux rigidus is greater than that seen in hallux valgus because removal of shoes does not relieve the pain; dorsiflexion at the metatarsophalangeal joint is severely restricted and painful.
  • Hallux rigidus is most commonly seen in middle-aged patients, but can develop during adolescence.
  • Unlike hallux valgus, males appear to be slightly more affected than females.
