Let's talk bunions!

Bunions are a progressive foot deformity.

A bony lump forms at the joint line at the base of the big toe which can cause redness, pain, swelling and/or restricted movement at the joint.

Bunion formation can be contributed to by a range of factors including but not limited to:

  • Excessive pronation

  • Wearing high heels or shoes with a narrow toe box

  • Genetic predisposition

  • Arthritic conditions

  • Hypermobility

So.. what should I do about?

There are a few things you can try at home such as ensuring you wear shoes with a wide toe box and no heel. If the bunion flares up and becomes sore, apply ice. Ultimately it is important for you to get an assessment with your Podiatrist who can provide advice in relation to footwear, possible orthotic therapy, padding, removal of callus and education regarding available surgical options if conservative measures fail.
