The implications of functional hallux limitus for lesser-metatarsal overload are discussed. A new method of treating functional hallux limitus is proposed, and three case histories are reviewed showing adequate resolution of symptoms using the proposed method of treatment. A proposed mechanism for the development of functional hallux limitus is discussed, and different methods of identification are illustrated. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 95(6): 593–601, 2005)
