Last week’s E-Journal Club reviewed a study demonstrating that symptomatic hallux limitus (less than 10° of dorsiflexion but greater than 0°) responds positively to conservative care. In fact, functional orthoses alone successfully treated 47% of all the patients in the study (with minimum one year follow-up). In this era of evidence-based medicine, this study provides direction and documentation for your orthotic therapy treatment before considering surgical care with these patients. Our Pathology Specific Orthoses for hallux limitus incorporate evidence from many studies to provide a simple starting point for your orthotic treatment. ProLab clients can contact one of our Medical Consultants to discuss prescription modifications for a patient's specific needs.

If you would like to remark on any E-Journal articles, you can post your comments on our blog.
