Hallux valgus, the main pathological manifestations are dislocation of the joint at the bottom of the great toe, which causes the great toe to bend laterally and cause the hallux head to protrude outwards. Etiology, congenital factors are due to joint, nerve, muscle imbalance caused by. Such as: flatfoot, heredity and foot muscle strength reduction and imbalance, so that the foot function is reduced, resulting in instability and deformation. The acquired factor is that the toe is forced to valgus due to the long-term wearing of pointed shoes, and the toe is forced to valgus. For example, wearing shoes with too high, too sharp and too narrow heel makes it difficult to fix the heel, causing squeezing friction and compression on the toe, which will accelerate the formation of thumb valgus.
