Diet for Prevention of Kidney Stones and Turf Toe

Turf toe gets no respect. Let's take a closer look at the causes of turf toe and see how to treat it more effectively. Turf toe is actually a form of hallux limitus. Hallux limitus is classically described as pain and progressive decrease in the range of motion of the first metatarsal phalangeal joint (MPJ). The onset of hallux limitus is due to the following:

Ronconi, P., Monachino, P., Baleanu, P.M.,Favilli, G

Distal Oblique Osteotomy of the First Metatarsal for the Correction of Hallux Limitus and Rigidus Deformity. J. Foot Surg. 39:3, 154-160, 2000 The more readers we get to this writing on Gout Joint, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting articles for you to read. So read on and pass it to your friends.


But before we go any further, we need to understand that the terms turf toe and hallux limitus aren't really synonymous. The fundamental difference between the two terms is the patient population that they affect. Turf toe is a term used in athletic circles referring to any injury of the great toe joint. Consequently, discussions about turf toe will focus on the first two causes of hallux limitus mentioned above; functional hallux limitus and direct physical injury. On the other hand, when we discuss hallux limitus, we're actually referring to a broader, 'non-athletic' patient population and need to include all three causes of hallux limitus.

Symptoms: Turf toe that is the result of functional hallux limitus is going to be insidious in onset. Functional hallux limitus will usually be seen in younger athletes as they attempt to increase their activity. It may not occur during the first athletic season, or the second, but when it does begin to cause pain, the onset will be more frequent and more severe, varying with activity. This profile of onset is simply due to the fact that the athlete is recreating the injury with every step. Turf toe caused by a direct injury to the joint may or may not be obvious. Athletes may not remember an incident of pain since they're often distracted by the event or game in which they're involved. The onset of direct injury to the joint may be abrupt, but also may be insidious becoming increasingly more painful as the season progresses. The joint pain will subside with rest only to recur with increased activity. It's not unusual to see symptoms of turf toe resolve in the off season only to recur with renewed exercise. Smile

The onset of turf toe always the same? Turf toe that is the result of functional hallux limitus is going to be insidious in onset. Functional hallux limitus will usually be seen in younger athletes as they attempt to increase their activity. It may not occur during the first athletic season, or the second, but when it does begin to cause pain, the onset will be more frequent and more severe, varying with activity. This profile of onset is simply due to the fact that the athlete is recreating the injury with every step. Reading is a habit that has to be cultivated from a small age. Only if one has the habit of reading can one acquire more knowledge on things like Gout. Idea

Treatment of turf toe varies with the type of healthcare provider and includes the use of rest, shoe modifications, orthotics, steroid injections and surgery. The success of non-surgical care will vary with the degree of injury, the rate at which the injury is healing and how much osteoarthritis has occurred. We see varying degrees of success with orthotics that promote plantarflexion of the first ray, effectively treating metatarsus primus elevatus and peroneus longus dysfunction. Simple arch supports can make a significant difference in the symptoms of turf toe. Should our patient not respond to conservative care in a reasonable time period, we are not reluctant to suggest surgical revision to address the problem whether it be revisions of the joint defect, shortening of a long first metatarsal or structural revision of metatarsus primus elevatus. As mentioned before, the clinical appearance of dorsal lipping or visible radiographic changes are suggestive of moderately advanced osteoarthritis, a condition that is only repaired by joint revision or replacement.




Anatomy: The great toe joint, or first metatarsal joint consists of two bones. The proximal bone is the first metatarsal and the distal is called the proximal phalanx or hallux. These two bone move against each other in an up and down motion through what we refer to as the sagital plane. Biomechanics: The motion of the great toe joint is dependant upon the plantarflexion of the first metatasal. If the first metatarsal is limitied in its' ability to plantarflex, the joint will jam resulting in funtional hallux limitus, which as we know is one of the causes of turf toe. There is sure to be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Gout Joint. This is because you are sure to realize that all this matter is so obvious, you wonder how come you never got to know about it!

What's the actual physical change that takes place in the joint with turf toe? As an easy analogy, consider the changes that takes place when an apple falls from a height and is damaged. The skin of the apple appears intact but the underlying pulp is damaged. In the case of turf toe (hallux limitus), think of the skin of the apple as the cartilage of the joint and the damaged pulp of the apple is the subchondral bone. Mild cases of turf toe (hallux limitus), result in little damage to the subchondral bone and will merely exhibit signs of inflammatory change within the joint. Most authors would refer to these cases as stage one turf toe (hallux limitus). More severe cases result in damage to the joint surface, the subchondral bone or both. These are the stage two and three cases of turf toe (hallux limitus) that show visible change on x-ray. As the subchondral bone becomes increasingly damaged, it will create an uneven supporting surface for the cartilage. An increase in activity results in uneven loading of the joint due to the compression injury of the subchondral bone. It would be hopeless trying to get people who are not interested in knowing more about Gout Joint to read articles pertaining to it. Only people interested in Gout Joint will enjoy this article.

Other Conditions

Synovitis, crystal deposition diseases such as gout, systemic arthritis, external physical influences such as Dupytren's contracture, etc. A lot of imagination is required in writing. People may think that writing on Gout in toes easy; on the contrary, knowledge and imagination has to be merged to create an interesting composition.




Differential Diagnosis: The differential diagnosis of turf toe includes; Arthitis Fracture Gout Joint infection Joint or bone tumor Synovitis This article has been written with the intention of showing some illumination to the meaning of Gout. This is so that those who don't know much about Gout can learn more about it. Rolling Eyes

Nomenclature: First MPJ - the big toe joint Metatarsus primus elevatus - a functional or structural position of the first metatarsal First metatarsal - the foot bone making up the proximal portion of the big toe joint Hallux - the great toe Go ahead and read this article on Gout Joint. We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

Functional Hallux Limitus

Biomechanical function that results in metatarsus primus elevatus and subsequent repetitive jamming of the first MPJ. Direct physical injury - injury to the articular cartilage or subchondral bone. These injuries may be due impaction injuries or hyperextension/flexion of the first MPJ. The length of an article is rather immaterial about its response from people. People are more interested in the matter about Gout Joint, and not length.

Foot Surg. 40:3, 137-143, 2001 The beer kidney stone an article, the more takers there are for the article. So we have made it a point to make this article on Diseases Gout as interesting as possible!

When treating turf toe be sure to recognize the fact that there is no nerve innervation in articular cartilage. Pain associated with stage one turf toe (hallux limitus) is either synovial pain or bone pain. If we recognize that painful stage one turf toe (hallux limitus) may be due to bone pain, we then realize that turf toe should be treated aggressively to insure the long term viability of the joint. As we got to writing on Diseases Gout, we found that the time we were given to write was inadequate to write all that there is to write about Diseases Gout! So vast are its resources.

Turf Toe Caused by a Direct Injury to the Joint May or May Not be Obvious

Athletes may not remember an incident of pain since they're often distracted by the event or game in which they're involved. The onset of direct injury to the joint may be abrupt, but also may be insidious becoming increasingly more painful as the season progresses. The joint pain will subside with rest only to recur with increased activity. It's not unusual to see symptoms of turf toe resolve in the off season only to recur with renewed exercise. People are inclined to think that some matter found here that is pertaining to Gout is false. However, rest is assured, all that is written here is true!

Gout Attack Strikes When You Least Expected It, that is to Say At Night

When you are sleeping peacefully, you suddenly feel some tenderness in the large joint of your big toe. That is a gout flare. That area suddenly becomes swollen, red and extremely painful. You might also develop a fever when suffering from a gout flare. The next 24 hours will also be very painful when having a gout. Shocked

Almost Ninety Percent of All Gout Patients, Suffer from Flares in the Big Toe

However, gout attacks may happen in other joints, like the knee, fingers, wrist. The gout signs are the same no matter the location of the attack. Aiming high is our motto when writing about any topic. In this way, we tend to add whatever matter there is about Gout Treatments, rather than drop any topic. Idea

When Suffering from a Gout, There are More Factors of Risk Involved

However, one of those factors is the head of the list when talking about a gout attack. What happens when uric acid increases? in your blood, also know as hyperuricemia is the main risk in a gout. All people who suffer from this condition are predisposed to having a gout flare. As your levels of acid rise in your blood, so does the risk of having a gout attack. Furthermore, this gout flare is very unpredictable. No one can say for sure when you are likely to have a gout attack. However, there are some factors that are thought to trigger the gout flare. Certain medicines, alcohol, stress and some other medical problems that you might suffer from may trigger a gout. Even if such factors are thought to be the ones responsible for a gout attack, there are many times that neither you nor your doctor can say for sure what was the cause of your gout flare. To predict the time of the chances of you having a gout attack can be done. This is not quite certain, but it may give you an idea. all you have to do is visit your doctor and have your levels of uric acid measured. This is the way to predict if you are likely to suffer from a gout attack in the future or not.



  • You can have your gout treated, but it does not make any difference when it come to symptoms.
  • The gout symptoms will actually go away in about one week, even if you do not treat your gout signs.
  • Furthermore, there is always the chance that you will not suffer from another gout flare again.
  • However, if you do suffer from other gout flares, this do not look so good for you.
  • As time passes, the gout attacks become more painful.
  • There is also the risk that if suffering from more than one gout attack, the duration of the attacks increases with time.

Make the best use of life by learning and reading as much as possible. read about things unknown, and more about things known, like about Gout. Idea

Blueberries ' Nature's Top Antioxidant Fruit:

Blueberries emerged as the top antioxidant capacity fruit in a laboratory testing procedure called ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity developed by the USDA*. ORAC has become the definitive measurement of antioxidant capacity. James Joseph, Ph.D, Chief of the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston, is working with blueberries to examine their potential to help improve motor skills and reverse the short-term memory loss that comes with aging. "The blueberry has emerged as a very powerful food in the aging battle," said Joseph. "Given the possibility that blueberries may reverse short-term memory loss and forestall other effects of aging, their potential may be very great." life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent! Very Happy.
