We want start by offering some reassurance: corrective surgery for hallux valgus is not always necessary. Try to keep your feet flexible by doing special exercises. For example, try massaging the overstretched areas and strengthening weakened structures using half a tennis ball. It is also important that you focus on keeping a straight posture when you walk. We often tend to lean either slightly forward or backward as we walk. If you opt for surgery but neglect to change the way you walk, then unfortunately the hallux valgus will recur. Most importantly: please throw out all of your shoes which are too tight!
When you buy shoes, don’t just look at shoe size, you also need to focus on shoe width. You will find a selection of comfortable shoes which help prevent pain in the Solicare Soft line. The shoes in this range are particularly elastic and the stretch insole barely puts any pressure on the foot. Pressure points become a thing of the past!
