Bunions are identified as a bony lump located most commonly at the base of the big toe joint, but also at the little toe joint. Redness, pain and inflammation can also be seen around the joint.
Bunions are caused by a foot deformity, specifically the big toe abducting inwards leaving bone to protrude outwards and more bone to develop on top of this. Other factors can contribute:
Most commonly, treatment aims to relieve pain, for example using orthotics (insoles), padding, splints or joint mobilisation. If the bunion is very large or painful, surgery may be opted for.
