Nagel A, Fernholz F, Kibele C, et al: Long distance running increases plantar pressures beneath the metatarsal heads: a barefoot walking investigation of 200 marathon runners. .Gait Posture27::152. ,2008. .
We present a case report of runner’s hallux limitus and the effect of dynamic splinting in reducing contracture as measured by gait analysis. After 4 months of treatment with dynamic splinting, the patient regained 45° in active range of motion, and the gait analysis showed significant and beneficial changes.
