Understanding Bunions

Bunions, scientifically known as “hallux valgus,” are “bony bumps” that develop at the base of the big toe. They occur when the big toe pushes against the adjacent toe, causing the joint to protrude and bend abnormally. Besides causing discomfort, “bunions can lead to shoe-fit issues” and may worsen over time if not properly addressed. But worry not! Our podiatrists are here to help you understand and manage this common foot condition.

Causes and Risk Factors

Various factors contribute to the development of “bunions.” “Genetics can play a significant role,” meaning bunions can run in families. Wearing “ill-fitting shoes” and “high heels” can exacerbate the problem. Certain foot types, such as “flat feet” or “low arches,” can also increase the risk of bunion formation. Additionally, foot injuries or medical conditions like “arthritis” may contribute to bunions.

Signs and Symptoms

Spotting “bunions” early is crucial for seeking timely treatment. The most common signs include a “bony bump” at the base of the big toe and “redness” or “swelling” around the affected joint. As “bunions progress,” they can cause “bunion pain,” “tenderness,” and “stiffness” in the toe area. Over time, the toe may drift towards the adjacent toes, leading to further discomfort and difficulty in finding well-fitting shoes.

  5. Pain Management: For severe cases, we offer various “pain management” options, including “anti-inflammatory medications” or “injections” to reduce swelling and pain.
