The Biomechanical Relationship between Hallux Valgus Deformity and Metatarsal Pain

Metatarsal pain is a common pathological condition in patients with a hallux valgus deformity. However, no systematic analysis has been done on the association between the degree of HV deformity and metatarsal pain. The purpose of the current research was to investigate the relationship between metatarsal pain and the degree of HV deformity. 512 HV patients participated in an investigation of their HV angle using X-ray photos between October 2017 and September 2018. The peak value of impulse and contact duration was concentrated on the second and third metatarsals of HV deformity groups, and the contact area was also shown on metatarsals 1, 2, and 5 ; for the two HV deformity groups, the highest value of impulse and contact duration was concentrated on the second and third metatarsals; the contact area was also shown on metatarsals 1, 2, and 5. Metatarsal pain on Meta2 had the highest VAS score, followed by Meta3. In the various degrees of HV deformity, these results showed that metatarsal pain was mainly located on Meta2 and Meta3 in the varying degrees of HV deformity.
