Treatment of Instability of the First Ray: Applied Biomechanics in Clinical Practice

Douglas Richie, Jr, DPM

Douglas H Richie Jr, DPM discusses the kinematics of the medial column of the foot including specific joint rotations during loading and locomotion. He also discusses the latest information of the pathomechanics of hallux abductovalgus, hallux rigidus, and functional hallux limitus as well as the link between first ray instability and digital deformities, plantar plate pathology and metatarsalgia and results of surgical procedures intended to treating instability of the first ray.
