Valgus deformation of the feet develops gradually: initially, the patient complains that my feet hurt with prolonged walking, especially on the heels, starts to the inflamed joint of the big toe, where over time form lumps, then it becomes very difficult to pick up shoes, a twisted thumb and a front of the front legs. On the soles of the feet falls seals – corns or corns, the second finger comes out on top and formed a hammer, it is bent and is not unbent.

Pathology represents the internal and external changes of the bone tissue of the foot, caused by the negative external influence, accompanied by painful sensations, expose the "bumps" in inches feet and its curvature. It is formed from a incorrect load on the inner part of the soles of the feet, what is its external portion and the little finger just picked up.
Started a state of disease is a very negative impact: the cutting head, excessive load on the spine, its curvature, the development of arthritis and arthrosis, clubfoot deformity was, bunions. It is necessary to the proper and timely treatment, as well as the use of individually orthopedic shoes.

The deformation arises from an incorrect load on the inner part of the soles of the feet, what is its external portion and the little finger just picked up. Violation occurs work the connective tissue (ligamentous apparatus).
The most important things we can prevent the disease to pull the correct shoes or using orthopedic insole in a timely manner, without losing time.
hallux valgus rates are measured using the following variables:
So, he has several degrees of valgus deformation of the big toe of the feet:
This disease in children can be congenital or acquired. However, the first type of disease occurs very rarely, then as the reasons for the latter are the most frequently dysplasia of connective tissue, which leads to minuit ligaments, which can not withstand the excessive pressure of the spine. In addition, the incorrectly matched children's shoes, bad ecology, overweight, genetic predisposition also contribute to the development of this disease.
In medicine decided to allocate the four hallux valgus grades of the disease:
Please note that for the determination of the degree of deformation it is necessary to contact the qualified professional who determined the x-ray degree of valgus deformity, prescribe effective treatment.

Secondly – this is a visual deformation of the big toe of the foot. As shown in the photo, alone, the foot loses its normal shape, develops bone ekzistas (seal bone tissue – "the beast"), and the thumb with time starts to deviate from its axis and moves on the other, to go on a second finger.
In addition, under the phalanges of the second and the third finger to appear corns, the sensitivity of the foot is reduced, there is swelling and redness of the skin cover.
An empty hallux deformation of the feet, as mentioned above, represents a pathological violation of the provisions of the soles of the feet. The severity of pressure crooked, the height is reduced, and its operation currently underway unnatural manner. Characteristic symptoms:
All of these symptoms allow us to make a conclusion about the presence of deviations, but for the veracity of the information is necessary x-rays and other treatments.
In the initial stage it is necessary to a thorough examination of the patient by a specialist examination of the feet, the bones. Timely treatment can be the main factor in the appointment of treatment. X-ray picture will show which of the stages is in the patient. Due to the fact that this disease provokes the development of associated diseases, after performing the above procedures, the image is clearer.
Diagnosis of valgus deformity of the forefoot in children takes place somewhat more complicated. For a complete survey, the detection of the presence, causes and complications of the disease recommended to reach out to some professionals: the children's podiatrist, neurologist, and surgeon. Depending on external manifestations doctor prescribes:

This disease does not fit sparing methods of treatment in most cases. The main methods of struggle with valgus deformation of the big toe of the feet, are:
Data treatment methods are also displayed on the valgus deformity of the forefoot in children. An experienced doctor may be assigned to electrophoresis, electrical or magnetic stimulation of the muscles, helpful are paraffin and swimming.
Depending on the degree of curvature, applying different ways of straightening.
When running 3 degrees of the disease may require extreme measures – operation. Is divided into several types:
As follows from the above, an Empty hallux deformation of the foot occurs quite often, especially in women. Lends itself well to effective treatment, both in adults and children.
