BUNIONS

Many of us have heard of bunions, but it is not always clear what a
bunion is. This is when the big toe moves towards the little
toes, causing the joint at the base of the big toe to jut outwards.
Bunions themselves are not always a problem. But this change in foot
shape means that a wider shoe fit is required to accommodate the bunion.
If shoes are too tight, this can cause calluses, corns, or even ulcers
to form on the bunion. If this occurs it is important to see a podiatrist
for expert treatment and advice. They may recommend more suitable footwear,
a protective device to go over the bunion, or in extreme cases, surgery.
