What is Hallux Valgus?
Hallux valgus sounds like a character from Game of Thrones⚔️or a spell from Harry Potter⚡️. It’s really just a medical term referring to pain and stiffness in the toe joint🦶🏻. Results from my x-rays and MRI showed no sesamoid fracture (good news🎉), but indicated hallux valgus and a sprain/tear of the ligament in the big toe joint (less good news😕). It’s likely that this injury occurred from some judo throws during jiu jitsu training 柔術👊🏻.
I’m meeting with our amazing sports medicine doctor, who happens to be an elite triathlete🏊🏼♂️🚲🏃🏽himself, soon to get more informationℹ️. I gathered my x-rays and MRI images into a movie🎥🔊. Enjoy and stay tuned to see how this affects training for the “toughest foot race on earth”🧐🤷🏼♂️🔥🐫 #marathondessables #saharastrong #walkingonthemoon #soundon#soundon 🔊🎶
