What is Hallux Valgus and Why Does it Occur?

Hallux Valgus, or bunions, is a gradual deformity of the feet which happens when something puts extra pressure on your big toe. It is a bony bump that forms at the base of your big toe. Bunions develop on the inside edge of your big toe joint – the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint.

How Does the Bunion Correction Splint Work?

The splint relieves the metatarsophalangeal joint and can help achieve a pain-free movement of the big toe if used in the early stages. A multi-dimensional joint holds the toe at a predetermined angle at which extension and flexion are prevented or can be permitted gradually via the adjustable straps, so as symptoms lessen you can increase mobility.

How Effective Are Correction Splints for Treating Bunions?

In a recent study by the Clinic for Orthopedics, Hannover Medical School, it was shown that the treatment of patients with symptomatic hallux valgus using a dynamic splint experienced reduced pain, delayed subjective deterioration of the toe position and was well received by patients. It was also suggested that this treatment was more effective with smaller, more flexible protrusions, highlighting the need for swift intervention.

How Comfortable Is the Soft-Padded Bunion Correction Splint?

Thanks to an extensively padded interior this correction splint is marvellously comfortable, to the extent that it can be worn all day or night. The adjustable straps ensure you have a personalised and snug fit, preventing chafing and allowing the splint to be tailored to your exact specifications.

Who Can Benefit From Correctional Splints?

There are a number of people more likely to suffer from hallux valgus for whom it could be beneficial to buy correctional splints at the first sign of bunion formation:

  • Women are twice as likely to experience bunions than men, particularly those who regularly wear high heels
  • 70% of patients with hallux valgus have a family history
  • People with increased distal metaphyseal articular angle (DMAA)
  • People with ligamentous laxity such as those with hypermobility
  • Anyone with convex metatarsal heads
  • Those experiencing rheumatoid arthritis
  • People with cerebral palsy

If you fall into any of these categories it is recommended that you buy a hallux valgus splint early to prevent further deterioration.

How Common Is Hallux Valgus?

Hallux valgus is the most common deformity of the forefoot and toes, 23% of 18 - 65 year olds and over 35% of those over 65 have hallux valgus. If you fear you may be developing hallux valgus, you're far from alone and there are a number of effective treatment methods that have been created over the years.
