Products to Treat Bunions
The Orthotic Shop carries the latest products for bunion relief. Bunions are one of the most common forefoot deformities. Bunions cause a displacement of the bone under the 1st toe. This causes the big toe to move towards the smaller toes. This shifting of the bones causes a bony prominence on the side of the patients foot (the bunion joint). Over a period of time the big toe may come to rest under (occasionally over) the 2nd toe.

Bunion pain is more common in women then men due to women wearing tighter fitting shoes. This condition can cause a variety of different soft tissue and bony complaints which may result in severe pain.

Symptoms include redness, swelling and pain which may be present along the inside margin of the foot. The patients feet may become too wide to fit into their normal size shoe and may experience moderate to severe discomfort may occur when the patient is wearing tight shoes. A "hammer toe" may occur at the 2nd toe. This is when the toe contracts and presses on the shoe. Subsequently, this may cause a corn on top of the 2nd toe.

Corns and calluses may occur on the soles of the feet, in between toes and on the bunion joint. Stiffness can occur at the big toe due to secondary arthritis, this is known as Hallux Rigidus. Other foot conditions can occur such as in growing toe nails and in severe cases the bunion joint may have a fluid filled sack called a BURSITIS. This can be very painful and can become infected

CAUSES OF BUNIONS

The most important causative factor is poor fitting footwear. This accounts for an higher incidence among women then men.Family history of bunionsAbnormal foot function, excessive pronation. If a chiropodist/ podiatrist uses this term he is referring to excessive rolling in of the foot at the ankle joint while you are walking.Rheumatoid or osteoarthritis.Genetic and neuromuscular diseases which can result in a muscular imbalance such as Down's syndrome.If one leg is longer then the other, the longer leg is more inclined to develop a bunion.If the ligaments in the feet are very weak.In some cases, bunions can occur due to trauma or injury to the feet.BUNION TREATMENT & "BUNION RELIEF"
