Bunions – What are they?
If there is a bony, swollen area where your big toe joins to your foot, chances are you have a bunion. The mechanics of the feet can contribute to the formation of bunions and in some cases a bunion problem can be associated with arthritis. There is also some evidence to suggest that they are a genetic trait.
Bunions – Symptoms
The base of the toe will typically be sore and swollen. In a severe case it may even be hard to walk. Footwear that is too tight or just doesn’t fit well will most likely increase the problem.
