Sandal season is around the corner so if there was ever a time to deal with bothersome bunions, it’s now. Bunions aren’t attractive (some people think they look like a foot deformity) and even worse, they hurt.
Bunions form when the big toe shifts from its normal position and moves toward the second toe. The joint at the base of the big toe “bumps” out of alignment, causing the side of your foot to look enlarged with a bump sticking out.
Bunions don’t just form overnight – in fact, it can take years for the bump to form. That’s why it’s so important to be proactive at the first signs of a bunion. A chiropodist can do a thorough exam and recommend early treatment options to help relieve the pressure and slow down the deformity of the joint. Orthotics may help keep your feet aligned correctly or in severe cases, a bunionectomy may be the best course of action.
