ABSTRACT

Objectives : I tried to examine the hypothesis that the mobility of passive dorsi flexion of the ankle joint is associated with degree of the hallux valgus angle in appearance. I began this study in order to grope for the possibility of the acupuncture therapy for musculation disorder of the hallux valgus. Methods : 15 patients with hallux valgus deformity who attended Dept. of Oriental Rehabilitation Medicine, College of Oriental Medicine, Dongguk University from August to November 2005, were involved in the investigation. We measured passive range of dorsi flexion of both ankle joints. I considered mordern concepts in the aetiology and pathogenesis of hallux valgus and found causative factors in aspect of the movability of left and right ankle joints. Results : I made a comparison between degree of hallux valgus angle in appearance and range of dorsi flexion in each sin [숨은설명:시작] [숨은설명:끝] gle person. In the event, larger degrees of hallux valgus angle in appearance were measured better in portion to the mobility of passive dorsi flexion(P<0.01). Conclusions : My interpretation of this results based upon Van Buskirk's nociceptive model is that shortening and dysfunction of the dorsi flexor muscles, especially anterior tibialis muscle and extensor hallucis longus muscle are likely to be causative component in some cases of hallux valgus.
