Treat Hallux Rigidus With SoftWave Therapy

Hallux rigidus, often called “turf toe,” is a type of arthritis that causes pain and stiffness in the big toe. This condition can worsen over time, leading to more agonizing pain and more debilitating stiffness that makes standing or walking a huge struggle.

Sadly, 1 in 40 patients over the age of 50 will suffer from hallux rigidus and lose much of their mobility without treatment.

Hallux rigidus is commonly caused by:
  • Overuse of the big toe joint
  • Big toe injuries
  • Genetics
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or gout
Symptoms of hallux rigidus include:
  • Decreased range of motion in the big toe
  • Pain and stiffness
  • Swelling and inflammation
  • Bumps developing on the top of the foot

Patented SoftWave therapy is an FDA-Cleared, non-invasive, highly effective option for treating hallux rigidus. If you’re struggling with hallux rigidus, you may be an excellent candidate for SoftWave treatment.

Dr. Nathan and his staff are extremely professional and make everyone feel welcomed. The experience and wisdom is beyond excellence, along with the state of the art equipment.

I had plantar fasciitis. Dr. Nathans and Dr. Thompson both recommended Soft Wave. I was very skeptical. I am a believer. I am pain free! Highly recommended!

Dr. Sam is truly a life changer! He has not only helped my wife feel so much better in spite of her chronic spine issues, but had helped correct my spine issues and eliminated by back pain!

One of the best chiropractic experiences I have had in a long time. I had immediate relief from a long standing chronic pain condition. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Dr. Matt is fabulous! He has given me 2 consults for neuropathic pain and explained a treatment option he recommends. His office staff is equally fantastic.

Such a nice friendly place. Just started treatment for neuropathy, here's hoping to be able to walk and drive again sometime soon.

Dr. Brown is not in chiropractic care just to adjust and fix people, she’s in it because she truly cares about the individual’s wellness. If anyone would ever ask me what’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, this would be it.

I’ve been going to Dr. Brown at InnerSun for over a year now. This spring is the FIRST spring in 15 years that I haven’t battled migraine-level sinus headaches – and I’m not taking any medication for it.
