Hallux valgus is the medical term more commonly known as a bunion. A bunion is a bony deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe and is often accompanied by a lump/bump on the side of the big toe joint that can be red swollen and/or painful.
The first metatarsal bone that runs along the foot to the big toe can also be pushed out of alignment. This can cause instability, pain, difficulty walking and can sometimes make finding comfortable fitting footwear difficult.
Total Body Orthotics has a range of splints available for bunions/ Hallux valgus.
Total Body Orthotics offers face-to-face clinical assessments for the provision, measurements and fitting of a wide range of orthotic devices from insoles to fully customised Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (KAFOs). Appointments are based at our clinic at The Arcade, High Street, Eccleshall , Staffordshire, ST21 6BZ. There is a £50 assessment fee to access this service.
If you have purchased a device from us and are struggling with fitting or wear we also provide free online Zoom consultations with our orthotist where we can provide remote support and advice where possible.
