Information of Bunion

This bump or deformity is called haluxvagus, commonly known as a Bunion. It occurs when the joint tissues of the big toe get misplaced.

The pressure on the joints, imbalanced weight increase puts a pressure on the big toe making it unstable and forcing it to bend towards the other fingers which causes a bump at the end of the big toe.

It is also attributed to the toe type inherited, shoe type, high heels, ageing and arthritis. Wrong type of shoes and high heels can cause the bones of the foot to deform. Hence, women are more prone to bunions. However, there is an argument over this where some experts say that high heeled shoes to not contribute to bunion formation.

It is quite painful. Since they are at the base of the big toe, they bear a lot of weight while you walk. People who have stiffer joints or those who suffer from arthritis are more prone to bunion formation at an earlier stage.
