Stiff big toe scientifically known as hallux rigidus is an arthritic condition characterized by stiffness and rigidity of the big toe. Arthritis of the foot commonly occurs at the big toe base. The condition can be quite painful as the big toe must bend with every step you take.
Technically a form of degenerative arthritis, Hallux Rigidus can wear out the cartilage in the joint that it affects.
