Hallux valgus is a malposition of the big toe. The big toe (hallux) turns towards the second toe, and the tissues around the big toe often become swollen, red and sore, with much pain. The disorder makes is difficult to have shoes that fit.
Hallux valgus is more common in women than in men. Tight shoes with a sharp tip or high heels, are very often the actual cause of this dysfunction.
Some are more expose for this dysfunction than other, especially persons with flatfoot.
What you can do yourself:
Use shoes with low heels and sufficient space for your toes
To ease, insert a “cushion” between the big toe and the second toe
Bend and stretch the foot and the toe
