Hallux valgus is a common condition that causes significant functional disability and foot pain. In cases of severe deformity or failure of conservative treatment, surgical correction is advised. Appropriate physiotherapy management is very important following the correction. Many patients go through the operation with high expectations of recovery and they are often faced with some challenges that we can help them to overcome when they start their physiotherapy treatment. This course discusses the post-operative management of hallux valgus and the key principles to successful rehabilitation
