The main causes include heredity, flat feet, and wearing inappropriate shoes (pointed shoes, high heels, etc.).

Symptom:
If the slanting angle of the thumb is more than 15°, it is the hallux valgus. The first metatarsophalangeal joint will feel stinging, especially after walking or activity. As the degree of hallux valgus becomes severe, the hurting degree, frequency and timing of pain will continue to increase. In addition, there may be thick sputum under the second metatarsal bone, and the second toe may also have the possibility of dislocation and even degenerative arthritis.
