Tape Sox Type Hallux Valgus (Bunions)


Walking without pain!
Hallux valgus bunion diagram malposition of the big toe Hallux valgus, often referred to as "a bunion," is a deformity of the big toe. The big toe often bends towards the other toes and a bony lump appears on the inside of the foot.  The cause of Hallux valgus is often the result of splayfoot. It is more likely to occur in those with a hereditary predisposition or who have  weakened connective tissue (due to e.g. pregnancy, medication, obesity). However, the leading cause of this malposition is unsuitable, pointed shoes with excessive high heels and a narrow toe area. These type of shoes can cause painful calluses and corns. If left untreated, Hallux valgus can cause pain and limit mobility which can lead to the formation of hammer toes and osteoarthritis in the base joint of the big toe. The Compressana Tape Sox Type Hallux Valgus combine the benefits of conservative methods of treatment, such as physiotherapy, with kinesiotaping to counteract malpositioning of the foot or toes. These Japanese Tabi like socks help stabilise the big toe in its original axis. The Tape Sox have a variety of directional tapes incorporated into them which purposefully counteract misalignment of the toes to help mobilise the joints and promote a natural movement of the foot. 
The Tape Sox are suitable for wearing all day and over a long period of time in all types of shoes including sandals, slippers and trainers. They can even be combined with insoles. Tape Sox can also be worn on their own when at home or as night socks.
Compressana Tape Sox achieve the best results if worn in shoes that are not too tight, with enough room for the toes and with flat heels (< 4 cm). The shoes should not be too small/short, as this also pushes the toes out of their natural position, which can cause hallux valgus as well as hammer/claw toes.
It is important that you slowly increase the length of time that you wear the Tape Sox, or wear them overnight at first, so that the joints of the big toes can gradually get used to their new mobility. In the course of a week, you can increase the length of time until you are wearing the Tape Sox all day long.
