In brief: Maybe it is

You may have a condition called hallux limitus where the joint range of motion is limited due to bony spurring or bone grinding on bone.
Treatment may be a cheilectomy or shaving away of bone. If the damage to the joint is more severe options include a joint fusion, implant or resection of bone, see a foot doc and have xrays taken for evaluation.
