First ray mobility is determined at the first tarsometatarsal joint. Accuracy of measurement technique not described, difference clinically irrelevant. Mild deformities are found predominantly in young women Figure 4a. Wide, soft shoes are helpful if they give the toes enough space. The bump itself is haplux due to the swollen bursal sac or an osseous bony anomaly on the metatarsophalangeal joint.
