Hallux rigidus – our treatment
If you are affected by hallux rigidus, i.e. osteoarthritis in the big toe joint, this is not only painful, but, in the long term, it can also lead to complaints in the knee and hip due to incorrect weight bearing. We therefore recommend that you consult an expert as soon as possible. Our foot specialists in the Rosenheim region are the right point of contact for you. Our primary goal is to enable you to lead a mostly pain-free everyday life. After a thorough examination, we will classify the stage of your hallux rigidus and determine your individual therapy with you. If you are in an early phase of osteoarthritis of your big toe joint, we will use conservative treatment methods. These include, for example, special insoles for your shoes, targeted physiotherapy or anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving drugs. If these measures are not sufficient to make your foot painlessly resilient again, your hallux rigidus has already progressed so far that surgery is required. Our experienced surgeons use various and – where possible – minimally invasive surgical procedures and explain the procedure recommended for your individual situation.
