What are bunions?
A bunion is a bone deformity caused by an enlargement of the joint at the base and side of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint).
There are two types of bunions;
- The regular bunion which affects the big toe &
- A tailor’s bunion, also called a bunionette which affects the small toe
Bunions form when the toe moves out of place. The enlargement and its protuberance cause friction and pressure as they rub against footwear. Over time, the movement of the big toe angles in toward the other toes, sometimes overlapping a third toe (known as Hallux Valgus).
So how do we get rid of bunions?
For bunion correction, people use a bunion splint or a bunion pad during the night and while walking respectively. They help in bunion relief by stabilizing the foot, fixing the alignment of the toe and improving the flexibility of the toe. It also decreases the strain on the other toes and lets them extend comfortably inside the shoe. It is fabricated from lightweight material and straps that mold it to the contour of your foot.

Things to consider when looking for the right Bunion Removal kit?
How ill the
hallux valgus symptoms
Many people with bunions suffer from discomfort and pain from the constant irritation, rubbing, and friction of the enlargement against shoes. The skin over the toe becomes red and tender. Because this joint flexes with every step, the bigger the bunion gets, the more it hurts to walk. Over time, bursitis or arthritis may set in, the skin on the bottom of the foot may become thicker, and everyday walking may become difficult—all contributing to chronic pain.
Other symptoms can include:
- Restricted mobility of the big toe
- Corns and calluses
- Soreness and Stiffness
- Experiencing sharp pain in big toe
Depending on the size of the enlargement, misalignment of the toe, and pain experienced, conservative treatments may not be adequate to prevent progressive damage from bunions. In these cases, bunion surgery, known as a bunionectomy, may be advised to remove the bunion and realign the toe.
