Arthritis of the Big Toe: Diagnosis and Treatment at Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute
As we age, we develop wear and tear of all of our joints, including in our feet and toes. Also known as Hallux Rigidus, arthritis of the great toe joint can cause you pain. Over time the cartilage in your big toe joint can get worn down, which can cause narrowing of the joint and can also cause bone spurs to form.
Podiatrist (foot and ankle surgeon) Dr. Jennifer Boeri discusses how arthritis progresses, how it causes pain, how arthritis is diagnosed and what treatments are available at different stages.
