Valgus deformation: causes, symptoms, treatment

valgus deformation of the finger treatment

Valgus foot deformities (hallux valgus), or, as they say, "bone" ("bump"), big foot, is fairly common in representatives of the beautiful sex.

Warp stop valgus (hallux valgus) - a disease, which suffer if < Tarsus - phalangeal joint, first finger and other fingers deformed. Wearing regular shoes due to disease is characterized by the inability of "pulse" that is accompanied nagging pain at the base of the thumb.

Symptoms of hallux valgus

  • a gradual increase in outward deviation of the thumb "bone";
  • Malleus the other foot deformation;
  • joint pain stop;
  • easy fatigue, foot;
  • difficulty with selection coloring.

Diagnostic methods

  • examination, an orthopedic specialist;
  • radiography stop 3-x accesses;
  • plantography – finger stop to determine flat feet.

Symptoms: arthritis; gout; osteoarthritis of corruption.

The course of the disease

Valgus deformation develops slowly stop. What happened to the usual wear shoe size the first patient to complain of a difficult uncomfortable shoes, then feet pain, suffer until the end of the day if visible, first the fingers and toes. The foot bone that works with a cross-portion of substantially deformed flat feet forefoot. Base flattens him, and in the center of the protrusion; a place that occurs in painful calluses, largely difficult to walk; hammer the second finger rises up and generally getting in shape– it's not that twisted open bend of Egypt. In general, the distortion lowers, the front section of the foot nerves and blood flow, and promote the development of arthritis.


  • if left untreated, the foot occurs continuously deformed joint, chronic bursitis;
  • re-structure Deychlendera metatarsal bone disease.

Guessed. Small and timely treatment deformation, appearance, and restore joint function can stop you. In advanced cases, the pain may continue even after surgery.

Causes and prevention

The reason hallux valgus stop – transverse flat feet, genetic, endocrine disorders, osteoporosis. The basic weakness lies congenital disease, ligament and bone tissue opening, the development of flat feet. The deformation promotes development in the wrong shoes. Especially high heels and a narrow nose. Such a shoe leads to unbalanced load distribution, resulting in a ten foot section of falling again will occur, and this deformation region and developing osteoarthritis of thumb joint.


  • duztabanlik orthopedic examination for timely detection;
  • wearing rational painting (no nails, sharp nose, made from natural ingredients, high heel 7 cm);
  • wearing orthopedic insoles;
  • comply with with a professional long standing stay, work and rest.


An orthopedic specialist who stop treatment of hallux valgus. You need to go to the doctor the first signs of disease, deformity correction, so that it may be in the early stages of processes:

  • selection of orthopedic insoles
  • complex physical therapy appointment, duztabanlik that prevents the development of Physical Education.

A running form in the disease require surgery. An intervention osteotomy bone reconstruction with a complex that contains a few bones, feet, change of direction, and the first metatarsal bones phalanges the thumb as an axis.

To walk, completely trusting, metatarsus, starting the third week after surgery. In most cases, the treatment fail the 6th week after surgery, the patient returns for a normal life. Recovery time is 2-3 months.
