Brief Summary:

The main aim of this study was to find the initial effects of kinesiotaping on pain and joint alignment used in the conservative treatment of hallux valgus.

22 female patients diagnosed with hallux valgus participated in this study. Kinesiotaping was implemented after the first assessment and renewed in the 3rd, 7th and 10th days. The main outcome measures were the pain hallux adduction angle. Kinesiotaping may be an effective treatment option in decreasing pain and deformity in hallux valgus deformity who are conservatively treated. In future studies this method might be shown in larger sample groups at longer periods of treatment comparing with alternative treatment approaches like exercise or orthotics.

Detailed Description:

Hallux valgus is a common pathologic entity affecting the great toe. Taping is an alternative method used to treat hallux valgus. The main aim of this study was to find the initial effects of kinesiotaping on pain and joint alignment used in the conservative treatment of hallux valgus.

22 female patients diagnosed with 13 bilateral, 7 right, 2 left totally 35 with hallux valgus participated in this study. Kinesiotaping was implemented after the first assessment and renewed in the 3rd, 7th and 10th days. The main outcome measures were the change in pain was assessed by using Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and hallux adduction angle was measured by the universal goniometry. Secondary outcome measures were Patients' functional status was measured by Foot Function Index (FFI) and AOFAS. The plain radiographic results were also measured before and after 1-month of treatment.

Pain and disability was controlled by KinesioTape® implementation in patients with hallux valgus. Kinesiotaping may be an effective treatment option in decreasing pain and deformity in hallux valgus deformity who are conservatively treated. In future studies this method might be shown in larger sample groups at longer periods of treatment comparing with alternative treatment approaches like exercise or orthotics.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: kinesiotaping
all patients were implemented a kinesiotaping to align the hallux to correct position
Device: kinesiotaping
correction method was used to align hallux.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adduction Angle of Hallux With X RAY [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after the treatment ]
    X ray was obtained in non-weight bearing sitting position. It's aimed to see the treatment effects kinesio taping


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. FFI [ Time Frame: baseline, on the 3rd, 7th, 10th and 30th days during the treatment ]
    We aimed to see the change in functional status with FFI (Foot function index) scale The FFI is a self-administered index consisting of 23 items divided into 3 sub-scales used to score each question on a scale from 0 (no pain or difficulty) to 10 (worst pain imaginable or so difficult it required help) that best describes the patients' foot over the past week. Patients were instructed to mark a VAS score for each question. The total score was calculated using only the questions answered.

  2. Adduction Angle [ Time Frame: baseline and 30th days. ]
    we aimed to see the change in hallux valgus angle during treatment.
