Posts for tag: FUNCTIONAL HALLUX LIMITUS

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. HOWARD DANANBERG STATES, "FUNCTIONAL HALLUX LIMITUS IS A TERM FIRST DESCRIBED IN PODIATRY LITERATURE IN THE 70'S TO DESCRIBE A PRECURSOR TO STRUCTURAL HALLUX LIMITUS.  IN 1984, I PUBLISHED THE FIRST OF 30-PLUS PAPERS ON THIS SUBJECT AND LINKED THIS ENTITY TO DYSFUNCTIONAL FOOT PRONATION, AS WELL AS THE CHRONIC RECURRENCE OF LOWER BACK PAIN.  FHL CAN BE DEFINED AS A CONDITION OF THE GREAT TOE JOINT IN WHICH NORMAL MOTION IS PRESENT ON NON-WEIGHT-BEARING CLINICAL EXAM, BUT DURING A SINGLE-SUPPORT PHASE OF WEIGHT-BEARING, RANGE OF MOTION IS COMPLETELY BLOCKED.  SINCE IT IS MOST COMMONLY AVOIDED DURING WALKING, IT MAY NOT SHOW ANY SIGNS OF INFLAMMATION OR PAIN.  OTHER SITES OF THE FOOT MAY BE STRESSED, BUT SINCE THE GREAT TOE JOINT SHOWS NORMAL MOTION AND A LACK OF ANY SYMPTOMS, IT IS RARELY SEEN AS THE ETIOLOGY TO MANY COMMON FOOT AND POSTURAL AILMENTS."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS TREATS THIS CONDITION VERY SUCCESSFULLY WITHOUT THE USE OF MEDICATIONS OR SURGERY. WE NOW HAVE 6 CHIROPODISTS / FOOT SPECIALISTS, 1 REGISTERED NURSE AND 8 SUPPORT STAFF.  WE ARE OPEN 7N DAYS A WEEK, EARLY TIL LATE AND CONVENIENTLY LOCATED LESS THAN 100 YARDS FROM THE BROADVIEW SUBWAY.
