Hallux valgus is a deformity at the base of the big toe, or metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, in which the great toe, or hallux, is deviated or points toward the lesser toes. First metacarpal bone is in varsus position and the hallux is in valgus position. The main reason of this condition is high-arched feet (pes cavus), where the bottom of the foot is overly-arched and hollowed, even when bearing weight. It’s mainly inherited and observed in women.
To prevent the deformation, the prevention is the most important thing. Try to avoid the long standing and high heels. Also, you should use our bunion splint AM-OP-03.
