Hallux rigidus is a common condition treated by foot and ankle specialists. Hallux rigidus is arthritis of the big toe joint. Hallux rigidus happens when the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones of the big toe joint deteriorates and causes the space between the bones to decrease and the bones start to rub together. Hallux rigidus can be caused from multiple different issues such as primary osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or posttraumatic arthritis.
