Re: Hallux Limitus

I had a cheilectomy with osteotomy. The same thing Shaquille O'Neal had in 2002. He's still running and so am I. He was back playing basketball in about 10 weeks or so (if memory serves). I wasn't running that soon due to other issues but was dancing at 4 weeks (wore my Merrell mules and put duct tape on the bottom so I could slide on the dance floor!). Wore dress shoes at about 8 weeks. So I don't see why you couldn't do a slow jog at 3 months. That's very reasonable.

I don't know where you are but I will give you my standard advice. If you are in or near a city with a pro football or basketball team, call their front office and ask who they use for "turf toe." If you are near a major college athletic program, call their athletic department and ask the same question. That's who you want to see.
