Medial hallux pinch callus is a sequellae of functional hallux limitus. When the hallux is unable to dorsiflex during toe-off, abductory twist leads to rolling off of the medial aspect of the hallux and “pinching” the skin – leading to the pinch callus. Thus your goal when prescribing an orthosis to reduce hallux pinch callus is to create an orthosis that treats functional hallux limitus. Our recommendation for an orthotic prescription to best treat hallux limitus can be found here.
ProLab clients are encouraged to call our medical consultants to discuss any orthotic prescripton questions.
