Bunion Relief

A thickening, bony bump, often with inflammation of tissues at the base of the big toe joint that can form as a result of genetics, faulty foot biomechanics and pronation. Also made worse by poorly fitting shoes, including too narrow, pointy, or high-heeled. Sometimes the big toe remains straight, with just a bump at its base. In others, the big toe will become crooked, pointing towards, rubbing, under or overlapping the 2nd toe.

Solutions: Wider, supportive, low heel height footwear that reduces pressure and friction on the big toe joint, cushions that protect the bunion area or separate toes that rub.
