Hallux rigidus is a common progressive arthritic condition associated with the big toe. It is caused due to the increased motion within the big toe joints. Following factors may contribute to the prevalence of hallux rigidus:
1. People with osteoarthritis are more prone to developing this disorder. 2. Imbalance in foot structure may also trigger the development of hallux rigidous. 3. It is believed that people with inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, gout etc. may cause hallux rigidus. 4. Participating in activities that involve continuous stress on the big toe joint may lead to hallux rigidus.
