A bunion refers to a structural problem with the foot in the form of a bony bump sticking out from the side of the foot, at the big toe joint.
This bump develops as the big toe pushes against the second toe, creating a prominent lump to grow out from the inside of the foot.
Early symptoms include pain at the big toe joint which gradually becomes warm and swollen as the condition progresses.
This condition is quite common among women who are fond of wearing tight-fitting or high-heeled shoes; these types of shoes force the foot into an unnatural position, restricting movement of the toes.
Some people may even complain of a painful fluid-filled sac developing over the bunion. This may make it even harder to find the right kind of shoes to wear with this condition.
It typically begins with limited movement and pain in your big toe joint (hallux limitus), and can gradually progress to no movement in the joint at all (hallux rigidus).
Ice therapy can help in providing pain relief especially for those bunions that have become swollen. Apply an ice pack 10-15 minutes every hour until the swelling goes down.
You will begin to notice changes in the way you walk, with huge improvements in balance and stability.
People often wonder if there’s a cure for flat feet. While it is tempting to seek out a permanent solution for the condition, it helps to know which treatment is the most effective in getting results.
