Bunion Symptoms

Bunion Symptoms – Do you have a bunion?

A bunion, also called Hallux valgus, is a deformity of the big toe. This is a condition where the big toe is angled excessively towards the second toe, and a swollen, bony lump appears on the outside edge of your foot. Typical bunion symptoms occur as the condition gets worse with the big toe rubbing against the second toe and pushing it out of place. The bunion will also start pressing against your shoe causing swelling and pain in the affected area. In addition, the bunion impedes the big toe from working properly, meaning the other, smaller toes have to take the burden of your body weight when you move - leading to further discomfort and pain. As bunion symptoms increase, your foot may become wider making it difficult to find properly fitting shoes. If left for too long, bunion treatment can be invasive, so it is important to consider appropriate care (Bunion Treatment Without Surgery) for your bunion to reduce symptoms before it’s too late.
