How to Reverse Tailor's Bunion July 26 2018
Ahh, the tailor's bunion. Small, but painful. A fact of life for many of us who wear uncomfortable shoes or deal with things like arthritis. Now, tailor's bunions don't happen as often as normal bunions, but the symptoms and causes are fairly similar.
The toe deformity comes from the days of old. Centuries ago, tailors would sit down at their chairs all day, sewing away, cross-legged. As such, the outside of their feet would rub against the ground all day. Eventually, the constant rubbing would lead to a painful bump on the base of the pinky toe.
While these little bunions, sometimes call bunionettes, are painful, there are plenty of options for those who are seeking relief. Here are some signs you might have a tailor's bunion and what to do if you're dealing with a big problem for your little toe.
