BunionsA bunion is a slowly developing dislocation of the big toe joint.  The first metatarsal spreads away from the other metatarsals.  The big toe moves in the opposite direction due to the imbalance of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments created by the abnormal position of the first metatarsal.  Eventually, the big toe squeezes the second toe out of position which causes a hammertoe or a crossover deformity.  Bunions are usually termed mild, moderate or severe.

 What are the symptoms of having bunions?

Some people who have bunions experience no pain at all, where as some people do have mild to moderate pain associated with bunions.

Bunion symptoms include:

Pain on the inside of your foot at the big toe joint.

Swelling on the inside of your foot at the big toe joint.

Redness on the inside of your foot at the big toe joint.

Numbness or burning in the big toe.

Pain while wearing shoes.

Pain during activities.

Corn between the big toe and the second toe.

Callous formation on the side or bottom of the big toe joint and second toe joint.

Pain in the second toe joint.

There is no clear-cut way to predict if a bunion will get worse. The severity of the bunion and the symptoms you have will help determine what treatment is recommended for you.

 What causes a bunion?

Bunions can occur for a number of reasons, but a common cause is wearing shoes that fit too tightly.  Bunions are also developed as a result of an inherited structural defect or a medical condition such as arthritis.

Don’t let your painful bunion go untreated.
