What is Hallux Rigidus?

Hallux rigidus means ‘stiff big toe’. It is the term given to osteoarthritic and capsular changes of the base joint of the big toe, resulting in stiffness and limited range of motion of the big toe. These changes at the joint may be a result of aging, typically occurring later in life, or may occur earlier due to degenerative changes as a result of repeated capsular strains and trauma to the structures surrounding the joint. Hallux rigidus presents as first toe pain over the dorsal (top) surface as well as limited range of motion of the first toe.
