Orthotics for Big Toe Arthritis

Big Toe Arthritis

Force travels through the foot with ease when all the bones, muscles, joints and ligaments work in-sync.

Someone with big toe arthritis will describe a deep, achy, or sharp pain when moving the big toe.

Typically there is no pain at rest as with most foot problems.

Big Toe Arthritis: the end result of wear-and-tear.

Orthotics for Big Toe Arthritis should move stress away from the big toe, but more importantly, equally distribute body weight & gravity stress across the entire surface of each foot.

Why is the Big Toe So Important?

Anatomically, the big toe is made to handle most of the body weight & gravity stress, BUT this only happens when force travels with ease from the heel, through the forefoot, & big toe with each step AS DESIGNED.

 

Here’s why Orthotics for Big Toe Arthritis are helpful.

When the arch of the foot flattens, big toe function is restricted thanks to ligament restraint.

Now the pattern of movement as the big toe can no longer rise up as designed without stress is wear-and-tear.

Over time, the joint cartilage continues to thin and eventually disappear.

The cartilage cracks, lubrication is lost, and the big toe becomes swollen and painful.

The right custom foot orthotic will effectively release the big toe ligamentous restriction, allowing it to unlock and function properly.

Abnormal joint stresses can now reverse, allowing the affected tissues to heal.
