Cut Some Calories!
Did you know that Americans generally eat twice the amount that is needed during a typical day? Look around you and see how overweight we have become and more prone to gout. Cutting 50 calories a meal will add up to around 15-20 pounds a year! So switch to diet soda, watch the condiments, easy on the chocolate, and you know the rest! With time, gout symptoms will become less and less. Suppressing our knowledge on Cure Gout is not our intention here. In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Cure Gout after reading this!
  • Water is better than Alcohol!
  • Again, What?
  • You should try to drink at least 10-12 glasses of water a day and watch the alcohol consumption.
  • If you do decide to drink alcohol, no more than one drink a night!

Go for a Walk!
Being overweight can lead to higher levels of uric acid in your blood (cause of gout). Go for a walk each night or join a fitness club. Start out slow and have fun! This is a dependable source of information on Gout Attack. All that has to be done to verify its authenticity is to read it!
  • Pass the Fruit!
  • Fruits are high in Vitamin C which is great to prevent gout!
  • You might also want to consider 'gout-fighting' Vitamin C supplements!

Don't Eat Those Veggies!
What? Well, some vegetable are high in purines (uric acid) and therefore should not be touched: beans, lentils, asparagus, mushrooms, spinach and peas. We have avoided adding flimsy points on Prevent Gout, as we find that the addition of such points have no effect on Prevent Gout.

It's Time You Treat Your Gout!
As you consider the possibilities for gout treatments, it is always important to know all of your options. Two options for gout sufferers are the traditional medical treatment of medication and injections and the more recently popular gout natural treatment. Both treatments will eliminate the arthritic pain (typically affecting the big toe), but only one is remarkably simpler, more affordable and more effective. In fact, the gout natural treatment not only stops the pain; the simple remedy also cures the cause over time so the gout sufferer no longer has to worry about more attacks!

Think about this..
Does modern medicine want you to know about proven natural remedies that work? Does your doctor want you to know about a proven, guaranteed gout natural treatment? Writing something about Gout Treatment seemed to be something illogical in the beginning. However, with the progress of matter, it seemed logical. Matter just started pouring in, to give you this finished product.

NSAIDs can cause side-effects including stomach pain, bleeding and ulcers. And corticosteroid (prednisone) can cause more serious side-effects including thinning of bones, poor wound healing and decreased ability to fight infection. It would be recommended to avoid corticosteroid because of severity of the side-effects.

For Instance, Think of the Flu!
How does your body feel when you have the flu? Exactly, it hurts all over. The whole body is working together as one organism that is affected by all its parts. Natural treatment remedies work by giving the body the proper means to heal the ailment. In the case of gout, various fruits, vitamins and a cooking ingredient act to neutralize the uric acid that causes current and future gout attacks. Along with curing the pain, the water soluble fiber from the fruit also cause the body to flush itself naturally. Leaving your whole body to benefit from the gout natural treatment. We had at first written a rough assignment on Cure Gout Naturally. Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.

You are asking these questions, you are the perfect candidate to try a 100% guaranteed (yes, guaranteed to work) natural gout treatment you can use at home. Take a minute and visit our Gout Natural Treatment Website and see why thousands of gout sufferers are going natural! You will be astonished how simple, affordable and guaranteed our natural gout treatment is.

The final natural health misunderstanding deals with traditional medical treatments. Many natural health experts are not opposed to medication and surgery. In reality, the medical field has helped millions of people annually. However, the problem arises from the excessive amounts of medications prescribed for some of the simplest ailments. Did you know that hundreds of antibiotics are dubbed useless because of resilient ailments? We are literally allowing doctors to take care of our body instead of our natural immunity!
  • Do Natural Treatments Work? If you knew that a natural treatment was effective and worked; would you use it?
  • Of course you would!
  • It would be easier on your body and your pocketbook.
  • But why don't doctors tell us about simple, effective natural treatments?
  • Consider why the pharmaceutical industry in a multi-billion dollar industry?
  • Consider why medications are pennies across the border compared to hundreds of dollars in developed countries?
  • Consider why pharmacists get paid 6 digits for dispensing pills?
  • Consider why the family doctor gets paid more than your state governor?

The Truth about Natural Health Natural health has been the newest rave in health and medical communities in recent years. Why? Because natural health is considerably effective at treating numerous ailments and it allows YOU to take care of your health and NOT a doctor or pharmacy. However, millions of people still believe that natural treatments are 'quacks'. To the sufferers' demise, many people have opted to not even consider a natural treatment for their health because of this stigma. Opportunity knocks once. So when we got the opportunity to write on Gout, we did not let the opportunity slip from our hands, and got down to writing on Gout.
  • The Truth about Gout Medical Treatment What's in store for those who decide to treat gout medically?
  • Typically, there are two treatments prescribed by doctors to remedy the pain associated with gout.
  • They are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroid drugs injected to arthritic area.
  • Both treatments will typically stop the pain with some side-effects.

Accidentally" Discovered a Devastatingly Effective Cure for Gout


A Gout Natural Treatment that Works! Only in the last few decades, have developed countries relied completely upon doctors and drugs for their health. However, simple remedies that worked over 100 years ago still work today. Yet, doctors won't even consider the legitimacy of natural remedies that work. Consequently, doctors continue to prescribe side-effect laden medications for all ailments.

But What Will Work?
Every gout sufferer just wants a treatment that will cure their gout. What treatment is the most effective? What treatment is affordable? What treatment is the simplest? Coordinating matter regarding anti gout foods a lot of time. However, with the progress of time, we not only gathered more matter, we also learnt more about Gout.
Herbal Cure for Kidney Stones - Vitamin C for Gout? It is a Good Idea, but There's a Caution If You Use It as a Gout Treatment
Quote:Should you take Vitamin C for gout? The answer is probably yes, but read on for a possibly relevant caution. Gout cures require that uric acid levels be reduced. Vitamins and drugs work in two ways to reduce uric acid levels. One is restricting its supply by inhibiting purine breakdown into uric acid, the other is improving uric acid's breakdown into the urine. Vitamin C is thought to be a uric acid excretory, not an inhibitor. Improving excretion may be more important than reducing production.
  • However, restricting purines in your diet is not difficult, so it is still worth doing.
  • The conventional wisdom may be correct.
  • Uric acid level tests should tell if a low purine diet works for you.

1,000 MG PLUS DOSES
If you wish to try Vitamin C for gout in doses over 1,000 mg as part of a natural gout remedy discuss it with your doctor or a qualified naturopathic doctor. The 500 mg level is below the British government's 1,000 mg (1 gram) recommended upper safety level safety limit for Vitamin C. It is half of the maximum amount (1,000 mg) in a Vitamin C tablet sold in the U.S. and many other countries. As we got to writing on Normal Uric Acid Levels, we found that the time we were given to write was inadequate to write all that there is to write about Normal Uric Acid Levels! So vast are its resources.

Few studies over the past 30 years have concluded that Vitamin C will reduce the uric acid level. They have differed in the amount of Vitamin C given to study participants. A U.S. study of 184 non-smokers, published in 2005, concluded that the amount required to achieve a serum (blood) uric acid level reduction was 500 mg daily. (The Vitamin C was taken as a supplement). This is not a mega dose. The more interesting an article, the more takers there are for the article. So we have made it a point to make this article on Gout Cures as interesting as possible!

5 mg/dL is a useful reduction but for most people probably not a natural remedy for gout, although the 0.5 mg/dL figure is an average and some participants did better. But a 0.5mg/dL reduction will not be enough to reduce uric acid below the 6.0 mg/dL level at which the MSU crystals may dissolve. However, when combined with other vitamins for gout, a low purine diet and other natural remedies for gout, it could be. People are inclined to think that some matter found here that is pertaining to Purines is false. However, rest is assured, all that is written here is true!
  • The 2005 study by how much did 500 mg of Vitamin C reduce their uric acid level?
  • It found an average, across all participants, reduction of about 10% ( 5 mg/dL).
  • In addition, reductions were larger among participants who had higher levels of uric acid at the start of the study.
  • Participants took the 500 mg daily level for two months.
  • Those who were given a placebo (i.e. not Vitamin C) showed a slight increase in uric acid levels.

One complicating factor is that elusive fact that most people with hyperuricemia (excess uric acid)do not get gout. Another is that some people with normal uric acid levels do. With people wanting to learn more about Gout Remedy, it has provided the necessary incentive for us to write this interesting article on Gout Remedy! Smile

VITAMIN C as a GOUT PREVENTOR
If 500 mg daily of Vitamin C can reduce uric acid levels, then Vitamin C ought to act as a preventative gout vitamin too. A Taiwan study of males in the late 1990's examined the weight, diet and lifestyles of gout and non-gout sufferers in Taiwan. It concluded that Vitamin C, folic acid (folate) and fibre were protective against gout.

The CAUTION
Rapid changes in uric acid levels can trigger a gout attack. This rapid change can be brought about by many factors in addition to possibly mega doses of Vitamin C and by drugs such as probenecid and sulfinpyrazone. People who are susceptible to gout must consider these rapid changes.

Such a rapid change concerned the authors of one study in the 1970's who had recorded that mega doses of Vitamin C (4,000 mg and 8,000 mg daily) reduced uric acid levels significantly, and by more than in the 2005 study. However, as far as Vitamin C induced changes in uric acid levels is concerned, this triggering has not been reported in any study. We have not actually resorted to roundabout means of getting our message on Gout Remedy through to you. All the matter here is genuine and to the point.

Also reached the well-known and accepted conclusion that hypertension (high blood pressure) and obesity are risk factors for gout. And one other very different conclusion from the conventional wisdom about purines -- purine intake, with the exception of alcohol, was NOT associated with a risk of gout. The length of an article is rather immaterial about its response from people. People are more interested in the matter about Uric Acid Level, and not length.
  • B>Osteoarthritis: Cause and Symptoms[/b] In our last article, we briefly discussed Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • This article will take a close look at the cause, symptoms, and current treatment used for Osteoarthritis.
  • So let's take a second look at what Osteoarthritis is.
  • One suggestion is that Osteoarthritis is a result of cartilage that has stopped functioning at optimum level.
  • Cartilage is continuously undergoing a process where it is broken down, then rebuilt.
  • Some theories state that this process becomes unbalanced and out of hand.
  • This is referred to as "End Stage Osteoarthritis." It is at this stage that joint pain and impairment begin to manifest.
  • There are many natural remedies that show promise in the management of Osteoarthritis pain and symptoms.
  • Look for future articles in our Arthritis Series that will offer natural remedies that may prevent enzymes from damaging cartilage.
  • Go ahead and read this article on Gout.
  • We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

Joint Pain- this tends to be worse when rising in the morning ' Joint Swelling and Inflammation- this occurs during periods of activity ' Feeling a "Grinding" Sensation when a Joint is moved ' Loss of Mobility and Flexibility

The Cause of Osteoarthritis is Not Known, Yet Doctors Have Many Suspicions
Some of the symptoms of Osteoarthritis boggle the minds of scientists and more research needs to take place to determine the actual root of the disease. For instance, X-rays can tell that Arthritis is present, yet the amount of pain reported by Osteoarthritis sufferers differs from the results of the X-ray. Though many people refer to Osteoarthritis as the "wear and tear" disease, evidence shows that this disease and its mysterious cause are not as simple as that definition. In fact, "wear and tear" does not take place in just one joint, but affects joints simultaneously throughout the body. An example of this, is that sufferers with Osteoarthritis of the knee, offer suffer Osteoarthritis in the hand. Also, doctors have noted that patients don't suffer with Osteoarthritis on just one side of the body (as would be expected due to wear and tear) but because it seems to affect the body concurrently, it appears that Osteoarthritis is a systematic disease affecting all of the cartilage at once. We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Gout. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

There is No Sure Way to Prevent Arthritis in Any of Its Forms
There are however some things that you can do to help lower your risk of developing Osteoarthritis or any other type of Arthritis. Some of the preventative methods that you may add to your lifestyle today include: There is turf toe be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Gout. 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!

Some of these include taking adequate Vitamin D and Calcium, exercising, and taking medication if needed. ' Do your best to prevent injuring your bones and joints -try to avoid accidents such as sports related, implementing joint protection by using splints and braces.

We've discussed the potential causes of Osteoarthritis, now it is time to look at the various symptoms of Osteoarthritis. The symptoms of Osteoarthritis include: The more readers we get to this writing on Gout, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting articles for you to read. So read on and pass it to your friends. Wink

Osteoarthritis is Known by Many as "Wear and Tear" Arthritis
It is one of the most common forms of Arthritis and is the result of cartilage wearing away from the joints. This cartilage is responsible for the smooth gliding of joints, and once it begins to deteriorate, the patient is left with pain, joint swelling and inflammation, and even deformity.

Some other ideas that point to the cause of Osteoarthritis include: ' Previous Sports related or Joint Injuries ' Genetically Inherited (it appears that Osteoarthritis runs in families) ' Repeated Occurrences of Bleeding into a Joint (as occurs with Hemophilia and other diseases) ' Repeated Occurrences of Gout and Gout like Diseases ' Avascular Necrosis- this is a condition where blood near a bone is cut off, this leads to bone death as well as joint damage. Avascular Necrosis typically afflicts the hip joint. ' Previous Rheumatoid Related Illness- such as Rheumatoid Arthritis can lead to chronic inflammation of the joints. ' Osteoporosis-due to the high risk of bone fractures and injury, Osteoarthritis may develop in joints. ' Metabolic Disorders- for example, Hemochromatosis can result in high levels of Iron being deposited in the joints ' Joint Infection-It is believed that cartilage may deteriorate in people who have defects in their cartilage and joints.

As of now, January 2005, more than half of all north Americans are struggling with obesity. The 'quick fix' for 'fat' for the last 40+ years, becoming ever more popular, has become the Atkins Diet. The Atkins Diet was first popularized in the U. S. Air Force during the 1960's.

The Second Myth: the Atkins Diet is Actually a 'Lo-Carb' Diet, Not a 'No-Carb' Diet
What should be cut out are breads, rice and potatoes. Fresh fruits and vegetables should not be cut back and many should be somewhat increased. Finally, after the first month you can 'safely' add breads and potatos --- in limited quantities. One friend of mine eats 1 bite of breads/toasts, etc., served with his meals, such as garlic breads. One bite and not a morsel more. Gout Diabetes play a prominent part in this composition. It is with this prominence that we hope people get to know more about Gout Diabetes. Big Grin.

The Atkins Diet is Very Simple --- Restrict Your Carbohydrate Intake
And guess what? It actually works. But Dr. Atkins, after the initial few years of his popularized diet, began to make modifications and refinements to the original basic diet. And several other people have taken the basic Atkins Diet, modified it just a little, and come up with a new and very workable diet.

The true danger of the Atkins Diet, however, lies in the fact that, for people who already have health challenges, the Atkins Diet actually worsens some conditions and creates other health challenges that did not exist before the Atkins Diet. The worst of these is Gout. If you have a tendency to suffer gout, no matter how well controlled you have it, a strict Atkins Diet will create a severe gout condition and gout attack for you. If you merely had the tendency for gout with no active gout, the Atkins Diet will precipitate an actual condition of gout in your body. A severe case of gout requires medical intervention to correct as well as long-term dietary control and change. The long-term danger of gout is an increased tendency for heart attack and stroke. See Native's Gift for one proven help for gout. Gout are versatile as they are found in all parts and walks of life. It all depends on the way you take it.

This article is meant as a source of information upon which you may base your decision as to whether or not you should begin using any vitamin, mineral and/or herbal supplement for better health, or begin using a 'greens' product as a dietary supplement. Developing a vision on Gout Attack, we saw the need of providing some enlightenment in Gout Attack for others to learn more about Gout Attack.

The reason why the Atkins Diet works is because your body metabolizes its stored fat (carbohydrates) in order to burn --- digest --- the protein, fiber and fat you are eating. The Atkins Dieters tend to leave out several food groups, including fruit and vegetables, since they are 'high carb food', and then tend to grab a steak instead, which has very low carbohydrates. There is a vast ocean of knowledge connected with Gout Diabetes. What is included here can be considered a fraction of this knowledge!
  • In doubt, or if you have questions, you should consult your physician and, if possible, consult a second physician for a possible different opinion.
  • The author does not bear any responsibility for your decisions nor for the outcome of your actions based upon those decisions.
  • Developing a gradual interest in Gout Attack was the basis for writing this article.
  • On reading this, you will gradually get interested in Gout Attack.

The first thing you must understand is that, across the entire human spectrum, each of us is very different from one another in the chemical makeup of our body. Thus, each of us, individually, should have our own highly personalized, custom built diet, created by a dietician using a chemical makeup assessment, usually a $200 hair analysis, of our particular body type and individual nutritional needs. So far as I know, this technology and this type dietary assessment is still available only through certain holistic health practitioners and it is becoming more and more expensive. As an example, it typically costs now between $200 and $300, whereas in the mid-1970's it cost between $100 and $150.

Your body type and chemical makeup is suitable for the Atkins Diet then by all means use it. Remember that there are several similar alternatives out there which may be more suitable than a strict Atkins, to include some of Dr. Atkins own later work and recommendations. If you have health challenges, to include a tendency for gout or actually suffer from gout, or have diabetes or any of several other disorders, the Atkins diet is definitely something you need to avoid. There are many varieties of Gout found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!

There are Three Major Misconceptions to the Atkins Diet
The first common myth is many people believe this means don't worry about the amount of calories or fat you eat so long as its not carbs. The second common myth is many people believe all carbohydrates are equally bad. The third common myth is that the Atkins 'Lo-Carb' diet is actually a 'Hi-Protein' diet. All of these, however, are enormous misconceptions. We tried to create as much matter for your understanding when writing on Gout. We do hope that the matter provided here is sufficient to you.

Gout: not just for men Atkins Diet. Any and all diets which highly restrict or eliminate one of the essential food groups we all need to maintain optimal health is equally bad. Stop the insanity and use a REAL diet --- the only proven diet which will work for virtually everyone. Writing on Gout proved to be a gamble to us. This is because there simply seemed to be nothing to write about in the beginning of writing. It was only in the process of writing did we get more and more to write on Gout.

What is it? Its actually two things: A food diet and exercise ' yes, simple exercise, like walking a mile a day. A completely balanced, restricted calorie, diet containing a little bit of everything. Eat three meals a day, get your sweets, carbs, veggies, fruits, juices, protein and keep it to 1200 calories a day. Eat your breakfast and go out and walk the dog ' if you don't have one, take your neighbor's. Give this diet a year of your life, weigh yourself every Monday and keep track of your weight, see where you are with it'..and make the change for the rest of your life. When you get to your target weight you may increase the diet to 1600 calories a day.

The first myth: many dieters who use this program believe that calories and fat do not matter when eating low carb food, but in some cases this has proven to be fatal. Depending upon your particular body chemistry, when eating high fat food your cholesterol could climb and climb, leading to a heart attack or stroke. Also, it has now been proven that the older we become the less our body is able to metabolize the 'high fat' portion of the Atkins 'lo carb' diet, leading to additional dietary and health problems.

The third myth: Mention the Atkins Diet and most people's reaction is 'Oh, yes, the 'high protein' diet.' Not true at all --- it's a 'Low Carb' diet ' protein intake remains unchanged. Some carbs only, not all, are restricted (versus eliminated completely); fats, particularly in older people, need to be restricted; protein should be kept to 4-6 ounce portions per meal, the lower values for breakfast and lunch. What you need to increase is your intake of high-fiber foods such as celery, etc. Revision is very important when writing or speaking about a topic. We had a lot of drafting to do to come to this final product on Gout Diabetes.
Diet for Prevention of Kidney Stones - 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:
  • <hr> Differential Diagnosis: The differential diagnosis of turf toe includes;
  • Arthitis Fracture Gout Joint infection Joint or bone tumor Synovitis

<hr> 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.

Other Conditions
Synovitis, crystal deposition diseases such as gout, systemic arthritis, external physical influences such as Dupytren's contracture, etc. To err is human, to forgive is divine. So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on Gout.

Think of turf toe (hallux limitus) as an isolated case of osteoarthritis limited to the first MPJ. Whether the injury is acute or due to repetitive loading, the result is a load that is applied to the subchondral bone that is greater than what the bone can tolerate. As the injury progresses, a series of micro fractures will develop in the subchondral bone. The typical soft spongy character of the metaphyseal bone changes to become brittle and hard. The result is that the articular cartilage looses its' underlying support and becomes susceptible to damage. Juxtachondral eburnation, osteophytes, lipping, spurring; call them what you like, but what you see on your x-ray is the slow progressive destruction of the joint. We have used a mixture of seriousness and forum on gout condition on Diseases Gout. This is to liven the mood when reading about Diseases Gout.

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.

Distal Oblique Osteotomy of the First Metatarsal for the Correction of Hallux Limitus and Rigidus Deformity. J. Foot Surg. 39:3, 154-160, 2000 Interesting is what we had aimed to make this article on Gout. It is up to you to decide if we have succeeded in our mission!

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. Time and tide waits for no man. So once we got an idea for writing on Diseases Gout, we decided not to waste time, but to get down to writing about it immediately! Wink

Nomenclature: First MPJ - the big toe joint Metatarsus primus elevatus - a functional oatsgoutpurin position of the first metatarsal First metatarsal - the foot bone making up the proximal portion of the big toe joint Hallux - the great toe Keeping to the point is very important when writing. So we have to stuck to Gout, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding.

Quote:References: Lombardi, C.M., Silhanek, A.D., Connolly, F.G., Dennis, L.N., Keslonsky, A.J. First Metatarsophalangeal Arthrodesis for Treatment of Hallux Rigidus: A Retrospective Study. J. Foot Surg. 40:3, 137-143, 2001 As the information we produce in our writing on Diseases Gout may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

The Relationship Between Articular Cartilage Degeneration and Bone Changes of the First Metatarsophalangeal Joint. J. Foot Surg. 39:1 24-33, 2000 It is always better to use simple English when writing descriptive articles, like this one on Diseases Gout. It is the layman who may read such articles, and if he can't understand it, what is the point of writing it? :o.

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. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Diseases Gout through a single page.

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.

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. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Gout. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it.

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.
