Hallux valgus – bunion toe

Treatment of pain by widening the forefoot

A forefoot deformity – also called hallux valgus – leads not only to an aesthetic impairment, but also to movement restrictions of the feet. The disease is mostly caused by years of wearing the wrong footwear. If the feet and especially the toes are squeezed in too tight and uncomfortable shoes for a long time, the foot base position at the forefoot deforms and leads to the development of a hallux valgus as a toe malposition of the big toe.
