“Bunion” is a term used to describe an enlarged big toe joint that is usually deviating at an angle to the foot! It’s also known as Hallux Valgus and is often concurrent with an arthritic big toe joint that may be painful and stiff.
Bunions can affect both men and women and on occasion adolescents. There are many contributing variables that can lead to bunion development from family history, joint hypermobility, foot posture, activity levels and poor footwear choices.
Our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists are experienced at managing bunions and can diagnose and identify causative factors through our Initial Consultation with Video Gait Analysis.
