Hallux Rigidis

Arthritis of the big toe

Hallux rigidus is a disorder of the joint located at the base of the big toe.

It causes pain and stiffness in the joint, and with time, it gets increasingly harder to bend the toe. Hallux refers to the big toe, while rigidus indicates that the toe is rigid and cannot move. Hallux rigidus is actually a form of degenerative arthritis.
