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.

Was referred by a current patient and friend who suggested Dr. Jenkins as a suggestion given my current problems and diagnosis. I went once got my initial updated x-rays to find that my diagnosis and scope of treatment options were more severe then I even thought or was even informed by previous doctors.

My greatest joy is being able to shower without or minimal pain. I am very glad I found the treatment and highly recommend it.

Dr. Dusty is amazing! I sleep much better after an adjustment with him. He also did a great job at draining my sinuses and releasing my ear pressure. I always start to feel better after seeing him for an adjustment!

My experience here has been nothing but the best. The service here is exceptional backed by people who genuinely care for your well being. The overall environment is warm, open and inviting to everyone.

I am very happy with the care that I received at Active Life Project. Dr. Kelli is amazing! She is knowledgeable and caring. She constantly provides a thorough and personalized treatment for my needs.

There has never been anyone in my life that has motivated me to push harder or reach farther then Kelli. She inspires me, even when she’s pushing me to do more than I think I can. I am where I am today because Kelli never gave up on me, even when I was ready to give up on myself.

Myself and my two children have been patients of Dr. Andrew Lazzaro's for years. Having two active athletes, Dr. Lazzaro, makes sure to take the time to talk to his patients and understand what has caused their issue.

Dr. Andrew not only takes a holistic approach to spinal care, but develops relationships with his clients. He takes time to communicate what is going on with your back and how it affects your overall health and well-being.
