Sooner or later, any woman, regardless of age, can face the problem of deformation of the metatarsal bones of the big toes. "Bones" cause a lot of inconvenience. They cause pain, deform the foot and look extremely unaesthetic. If a problem occurs, you need to get rid of it. Getting rid of the "bones" is not easy, but possible.
- The main cause of the deformity is the weakness of the connective and bone tissues of the foot. High-heeled shoes exacerbate the problem as the load is transferred to the big toe, upsetting the balance between the heel, metatarsal bones of the big toe, and the little toe. As a result, the metatarsal bone of the thumb deforms, increasing the bearing surface, and the thumb is displaced. Moreover, arthrosis of the joint begins to develop, accompanied by pain.
- In addition, osteoporosis and endocrine disorders in the body can become the cause of "bones".
At the initial stage of deformation, massage, physiotherapy and physiotherapy exercises will help. If the cause of the deformity lies in flat feet, you will need special shoes.
There are folk methods that help to cope with the "bones" at the initial stage of their occurrence.
Take a fresh chicken egg, put it in a glass and pour 50ml of 70% vinegar essence. Place the glass in a dark place for 2 weeks. When the shell has dissolved, remove the shell from the egg and discard it. Mix the contents of the glass and add 1 tablespoon of butter and 10 g of turpentine there. Apply the ointment to the "bones" overnight for 12 days.
Apply a compress of burdock leaves with turpentine to problem areas. A compress from propolis helps well. A piece of propolis must be softened, applied to the "bones" and tied overnight.
Make baths of a decoction of chamomile, St. John's wort and valerian root at night. A bath of a mixture of warty birch leaves, lemon balm herb, thyme and black poplar helps a lot. Pour 10 tablespoons of each herb with 3 liters of water and boil for 5 minutes. After a few hours, add to a bowl of water. The water temperature should be 30-35 degrees. Take baths for 15-20 minutes.
If the problem is serious, you need radical methods. The most effective method is to correct the transverse arch of the foot. During this procedure, the angle between the bones of the foot changes and an anatomically correct shape is formed. The correction is performed under local anesthesia. After a couple of weeks, the foot will recover and be able to function normally.
