How do Knitido Dr. Foot Hallux Valgus toe socks work
Our product follows two approaches.

At the same time, you should be equipped with appropriate Exercises become active against your hallux valgus - your physiotherapist, chiropractor or podiatrist will be happy to support you.
2. compression on the joint affected by hallux valgus
Thanks to a compression band, our toe socks pull together the metatarsal bone of the foot, i.e. the joint affected by hallux valgus. The slight but constant pressure exerted on the bone causes a slight spread between the foot and the big toe, by about 1° towards the outside. Depending on the severity of the hallux, this can lead to immediate relief and further relieve the lateral muscles.
Unlike orthoses, for example, which use splinting to correct the alignment of the foot, Knitido follows the opposite approachWe free the toe area from tensions caused by sack-shaped socks. How our socks open Scope for the self-healing processThe toes return to their natural position, move more and can be strengthened.
What is hallux valgus and how does it arise?
Hallux valgus has many possible causes and expressions: Wrong shoes, wrong socks, too little foot movement, but also an inherited weakness of the connective tissue can be the reason.
It often develops slowly, over years, and is visible and often noticeable through a thickened big toe joint. This thickening causes the big toe to wander inwards. Normally, lateral muscles and tendons hold it in position, so that it stands straight forward in a radiating shape - like a fan.
These muscles and tendons lose their function, the toe slowly bends inwards and the ball of the foot appears, especially in contact with shoes, but often also when running.
Whatever the underlying causes, hallux valgus is most often caused by Loss of function of muscles and tendons This is the result, which should actually keep the toes in position.
