Non-surgical treatment options exist for this health problem and may help reduce your symptoms. Possible conservative care treatment options for your hallux limitus and rigidus include:
The extent to which non-surgical treatment (e.g., using Correct Toes and wearing wide-toe-box shoes) can alleviate hallux limitus and hallux rigidus depends on your ability to manually move your big toe in two directions: away from your second toe (abduction) and upward (dorsiflexion). If these movements are significantly restricted, conservative approaches may not help with your condition. However, if some movement remains, the above-mentioned strategies can be useful.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
