Bunions

A bunion is an enlarged bone on the side of the big toe that is angled outward. Depending on the severity of the bunion, the big toe may be angled mildly or sharply toward the other toes.

What causes bunions ?

Bunions are most often caused by an inherited foot type that is biomechanically unstable. Wearing certain types of shoes can cause the bunion to progressively worsen.

How do bunions develop ?

Most bunions form as the big toe responds to abnormal pressure on foot joints. For example, your foot may roll excessively inward during walking. Over time, this stress may cause the big toe to move toward the other toes. This, in turn, pushes the big toe joint outward.

Treatment

Treatment options for bunions include :

  • Changes in shoewear
  • Padding
  • Activity Modification
  • Medications
  • Applying Ice
  • Injections
  • Orthotic Devices
  • Surgery

After a thorough examination and consultation, the doctor’s at Mount Kisco Foot Specialists, PLLC will help you decide on the treatment plan that most appropriately suits your needs.
