What Are Bunions?

by MASS4D® Insoles


This is a bony bump that develops on the inside of the foot at the big toe joint. This occurs when the tip of the big toe pushes against the second toe, causing a noticeable lump to grow out from the inside of the foot.

The symptoms and causes of bunions need to be considered to develop a better understanding of the condition. Early symptoms include pain at the big toe joint which gradually becomes warm and swollen as the condition progresses.

Risk factors for bunions include poor foot posture like flat feet that causes extra pressure on the big toe joint, tight-fitting shoes and hereditary factors. In some cases, a painful fluid-filled sac (called a bursa) may also develop over the bunion.

If you suspect you have a bunion, consult a foot specialist for a thorough physical examination and X-ray. Early detection and treatment with shoe modifications, stretching exercises and posture correction are important in avoiding surgery (bunionectomy).

MASS4D® supports the foot in its corrected posture, redistributing pressure on the front foot, especially the big toe joint. This speeds up the healing process, reduces inflammation and allows for pain-free and full motion of the big toe.
