Bunions

(Hallux Abducto Valgus)

Bunions form when the bone or tissue at the joint at the bottom of the big toe moves out of place. Years of abnormal motion and pressure on the joint forces the big toe to bend toward the others, which causes an often-painful lump on the joint.

This joint at the base of the big toe carries too much  weight while walking so the joint may become so stiff and sore which  causes severe and constant pain. Eventually the joint becomes arthritic.

Bunions are the most common case of foot related injuries that we see here at Modpod.
