WHAT IS IT?
- A bunion is often thought of as being a bump on the side of the big toe, however it is more complex than that.
- A bunion is actually a change in the bone structure of the front of the foot.
- When you have a bunion, the big toe leans towards the second toe, instead of pointing straight ahead.
- This throws all the bones out of alignment and therefore producing the bunion’s “bump”.
- Over time the bunion can become bigger and more painful.
