is a common disease of the 1st toe. With this disease, the joint of the thumb is deformed. Subsequently, the problem passes to the rest of the fingers.
During the disease, the joint begins to hurt and ache
Because of this, it is no longer possible to wear shoes comfortably. The so-called bump grows gradually. Initially, there is discomfort when wearing your regular shoes. Then there is a painful sensation and deformity of the joints of the foot occurs. If you do not pay due attention to the disease and delay the treatment of the bone, then this can develop into something worse, namely chronic bursitis and Deichlanders disease.
The main causes of hallux valgus are called:
- flat feet;
- great load on the legs.
Methods of treatment
There are two ways to solve this disease: surgical and home.
During surgery, the bone of the protruding joint is cut off. The second option of surgical intervention involves fixing the affected joint with two special plates.
But such treatment has its drawbacks:
- long recovery period (up to six months);
- possible complication in the postoperative period;
- probable relapse.
The above operations do not give a full guarantee of cure. You should consult a doctor if other methods of treatment have not helped you. In other cases, you can cope with this disease yourself
Basically, the following treatment methods are used to treat joint deformity:
- alignment with orthotics;
- warm foot baths;
- Toes and feet massage
With the exception of these methods, a decoction of madder dye and home compresses and ointments can be effective. In addition, many recommend clay compresses.
If you want your legs to always remain healthy and beautiful, you need to carefully monitor and capture the smallest changes in your body, as well as take preventive measures to prevent diseases.
