Hallux no

The bunion is the head of this first metatarsal which produces the prominence on the inner side of the now wider foot.With a bunion this has become more prominent than normal because the 1st metatarsal has moved away from its immediate neighbour the 2nd metatarsal. | What treatments are available for bunions or hallux valgus?A bunion or hallux valgus is commonly confused with hallux interphalangeus (where the deformity lies more distally and which tends to be less problematic).An inevitability of the splaying of the foot which occurs with a bunion or hallux valgus is that the great toe itself is then pulled across in the opposite direction (towards the second toe) by the still normally located tendons of the big toe.Tendons run circumferentially around the metatarsal and toe.Hallux valgus (bunion) | How does a bunion or hallux valgus occur? ) | Where, why and when might I expect to get bunion or hallux valgus pain? | If I have a bunion or hallux valgus is the best treatment surgery? | Bunion surgery | Bunion surgery at the clinic | Additional procedures may be necessary | Can the big toe joint(mtp) always be left mobile?This widens the forefoot thus producing the bunion.The bunion tends to be painful mainly when in enclosed shoes and so is often more symptomatic in winter.A true bunion or hallux valgus results from a drifting inwards of the big toe metatarsal from its normal position closer to the second metatarsal.Hallux interphalangeus Hallux Rigidus How does a bunion or hallux valgus occur?| My bunion is not so painful now but I don't want to end with feet like my grandma's | Minimising symptoms after bunion or hallux valgus surgery | Bunion operations - the scarf osteotomy | The scarf osteotomy-animation | Operative stills- the scarf osteotomy | Operative stills-the Arthrex Basal plate | Pre and post operative images of bunion surgery | After the bunion or hallux valgus operation | Complications of bunion or hallux valgus surgery Bunion A bunion or hallux valgus is a prominence on the inner border of the foot effecting the big toe and at the level of the 1st metatarso-phalangeal (MTP) joint.In a bunion or hallux valgus, with the shift/displacement of the first metatarsal these tendons no longer lie in the correct axis and in fact act as a deforming force, contributing to the bunion condition. Where and why has bunion or hallux valgus pain occurred?Here there is no increase in the space between the metatarsals, and the deformity lies in the shape of the phalynx bone.

As the front part of the foot splays and the great toe moves across towards the 2nd toe a bunion can also produce pain from the 2nd toe itself.They both move and stabilise the toe under normal circumstances.The pain which a bunion produces on the 2nd toe is either due to direct rubbing between the great toe and the 2nd toe, a hammer toe type deformity produced due to crowding of the 2nd toe by the bunion and the 3rd toe.Bunions or hallux valgus tend to give pain predominantly from the metatarsal head on the inner border of the foot.The bunion prominence which is seen and felt on the inner border of the foot is not due to any growth of bone but is due to the 1st metatarsal bone.
