A fluid filled pad overlying the big toe joint, which causes the joint at the bottom of the toe to bend outwards and the top to bend inwards. Can be very Painful. A bunion results from the shoe rubbing against this outward projection, causing irritation and Inflammation. This can be caused by wearing ill-fitting or narrow, pointed shoes, or through an inherited joint weakness.
Correctly fitting shoes and a special toe pad will help to correct small bunions, whilst larger ones may require surgery.
