About

Manual approach of Hallux Valgus with global postural reeducation.

Full description

Hallux Abducto Valgus is a frequent pathology with a prevalence of 30% in women and 13% in men. The tendency is to increase with age. Usually, the elected treatment is surgery, as the conservative orthopedic methods are used at the early stages of the pathology. Global Postural Re-Education is a manual therapy treatment method through which we can treat lots of pathologies. Some investigations demonstrate Postural Re-Education is effective for the treatment of temporomandibular disorders, urinary incontinence, and spine disorders, but there is no scientific evidence that defends the improvement of the symptoms and correction of the angle of the Hallux Abducto Valgus using Postural Re-Education.
