Stiff Big Toe

Restore Your Mobility With Help From Our Team

If you suffer from hallux rigidus (aka “stiff big toe”), then Dr. O'Neill and our team at Pomona Valley Podiatry Group can help. Hallux rigidus is a form of degenerative arthritis that attacks the joints of your big toe, and it can continue to worsen over time if not treated by a properly trained and experienced podiatrist. We provide both non-surgical and surgical options for your stiff big toe in Pomona, CA, and the La Verne and Claremont, CA, areas to help restore your mobility and eliminate your pain.

What Are the Symptoms of Hallux Rigidus?

Some patients with hallux rigidus mistakenly believe they have a bunion since both conditions affect the same joint in your body. However, bunions and hallux rigidus are quite different conditions that require different treatment approaches.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t wait to schedule an appointment with Dr. O'Neill:

  • Pain or stiffness in your big toe when you walk, stand, or bend
  • Swelling or inflammation around your big toe joint
  • Cold or damp weather aggravates your big toe pain or stiffness

As the hallux rigidus in your big toe progresses, you may also begin to experience more advanced symptoms, such as:

  • Pain in your big toe while at rest
  • Trouble wearing shoes due to bone spurs
  • Chronic ache or pain in your hip, knee, or lower back (caused by changes in how you walk)
  • Limping when you walk

If you are suffering from hallux rigidus in any of its stages, Dr. O'Neill can help! Call our office today to schedule your initial consultation and get back to living your life free from pain.
