Introduction: The hallux valgus is one of the most common abnormality in the school girls. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between some anthropometric indices and foot type with hallux valgus in 10-12-year-old female students.
Methods: This descriptive correlational study was conducted on 60 female students aged from 10 to 12 years with hallux valgus abnormality in Ghaemshahr city who were selected using available sampling method. After data collection, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was used to check the normality of the data and the relationship between variables was examined by Spearman correlation coefficient using SPSS software. All hypotheses were tested at 95% level of significance.
Results: The results of this study showed a significant relationship between hallux valgus and weight (P=0.03), body mass index (P=0.008), width of the front of the foot (P=0.04), and navy drop rate (P=0.001), while no significant relationship was found between hallux valgus and height (P≥0.05) and foot length (P≥0.05).
Conclusion: The results of the present study showed a positive and significant relationship between weight, body mass index, width of the front of the foot, and flat foot with hallux valgus. Therefore, weight control, the use of shoes appropriate to the width of the front of the foot, and treatment of flat foot is recommended to reduce the rate of hallux valgus.
