Watch out Sugar Land Skeeter fans! There’s a blue swarm headed your way! Playoff tickets are now on sale and all eyes will be on these local favorites. Have you ever wondered how these players feel after a game? Baseball is a sport that can be hard on the feet. With fifteen pitchers listed on the team roster, one of them is bound to suffer from pain in the big toe joint. Imagine the force as the man on the mound lunges and releases the ball. While you may not be throwing heat, joint pain in the big toe can affect anyone.

The worst thing that you can do is to ignore foot pain of any kind. This often happens with toe pain, because people think that it is normal, or that there’s nothing that can be done. There’s good news! Pain in the feet can always be addressed, and conservative measures will often resolve your discomfort.

In the case of joint pain in the big toe, your shoes may be the problem. The structure of the foot dictates where the most weight will be felt during movement. The correct shoe and a custom orthotic often relieves the pressure. An evaluation in one of our three Texas locations will provide you with valuable information about your unique foot type and shoe gear needs.

Exercise—your toes! Stretching and strengthening exercises can be done at home, and they often help to relieve joint stiffness. Massage is another step that you can take in the comfort of your own living room. Our expert staff can advise you on the best stretches and massage techniques for your condition. Don’t forget that icing can reduce inflammation, while heat can provide relief for the achy feeling in your big toe joint.

Hallux rigidus simply means “stiff big toe,” and its name describes the condition well. It is a degenerative arthritis in the first joint of the big toe, making it rigid and either restricting or preventing it from bending. Normally, your toe and the first metatarsal bones glide past each other on smooth cartilage caps. When the tissues break down, however, the bones grind together painfully and block bending. This can impair your ability to walk.

Don’t let toe pain keep you out of the game! Make an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas today, and learn more about how to end your joint discomfort. With offices in Sugar Land, Missouri City, and Houston, pain relief is just a short drive away—call now!
