Do your feet look deformed?You could have a bunion. Bunions are a lump or bump on the side of the big toe joint. The hard bump is actually a boney growth that can change the alignment of your big toe.
Not every one experiences pain with a bunion, but it can be excruciating for some - especially, if banged or bumped. The pain can be aggravated by poor fitting narrow shoes with a shallow toe box.
What causes a Bunion?
Many people inherit the problem from their parents and grandparents. Poorly aligned bone structure further up the leg can cause the bones of the foot to structurally change configuration.
Some studies indicate that shortened tendons and ligaments up the leg can significantly change the alignment of bones in the feet.
Wearing high-heeled shoes can make the condition worse, confirming the data showing "more women, than men" get bunions.
Do you have trouble getting shoes to fit?
After the bunion develops... getting shoes that are comfortable and cushion soft on your feet can be a challenge.
You may have to go to a specialty shoe shop that offers comfortable walking shoes.
