Do you live in the UK and suffer from severe toe joint discomfort? If the answer is yes then you’re not alone. Toe Joint pain is a major discomfort for a lot of people living in Britain. Here is the A, B, C of toe joint ailments.

  1. Mallet Toe

    Mallet toe occurs when a person who is experiencing toe discomfort, notices that their other smaller toes are bent in to an abnormal position. Mallet toe impedes a person’s ability to freely move their smaller toes. If you experience mallet toe then it’s recommended that you seek the advice of a medical professional as this can hinder your mobility.

  2. Bunions

    One of the most common foot ailments in the UK, Bunions, (hallux valgus), causes pain within the large toe of a person’s foot. It’s a bony malformation of the joint at the base of the big toe. It’s believed that nearly 50% of UK adults might have bunions. If you suffer from bunions then you may experience pain in your large toe and toe joint.

  3. Gout

    Gout can result in pain and discomfort in a person’s big toe joint pain. Symptoms can include a person feeling discomfort, inflammation and overheating all over the large toe. Your nutrition can play a huge part in Gout. Certain foods such as prawns, crabs and octopus and drinks such as beer and red wine carry the ingredient, Purines which when broken down by our bodies, produces uric acid. Next, the uric acid creates urate crystals forming in our large toe which will then cause a person to experience severe pain and discomfort.
