May or may not : Be related. The peroneal longus tendon inserts on the base of the first metatarsal and this may have something to do with the function of the great toe. Xrays to rule out hallux limitus/rigidus and clinical exam are warranted. ...Read more

Sometimes the casting after a procedure can limit rom and the disuse can lead to weakness, or the cast could have been improperly modeled around your great toe joint (your toe should have been allowed to move). It's unlikely anything during surgery could have affected the joint or the tendon to the toe. ...Read more

What effect would posterior tendon release in big toe have on gait? Ii have claw toe due to nerve damage from laminectomy

What effect would posterior tendon release in big toe have on gait?  Ii have claw toe due to nerve damage from laminectomy

Improvement: The posterior tibial tendon causes the foot and ankle to turn in (inversion). Release of the posterior tibial tendon allows the arch of the foot to flatten, decreases ankle/foot inversion (turning in), and allows turning out (eversion). It would improve the rocker motion of the foot during gait. It may not effect a claw toe deformity unless the toe (flexor hallucis) tendons are also released. ...Read more
