What are bunions and what causes it?
A bunion is a deformity at the base of the big toe. Bunions can be hereditary, or develop because of weakened foot structure, prolonged wear of ill-fitting high heeled shoe, or due to the arthritis. Bunions usually worsen over time if left untreated and can become very painful.
What are possible bunion treatments?
If the condition is mild, custom made orthotics and orthopedic shoes and bunion braces might help foot move back into normal position. Also, certain medications and injections can be used in order to control the pain and discomfort.
