BUNIONS / HALLUX VALGUS & TAILOR'S BUNION
Definition of a Hallux Valgus
A bunion/hallux valgus is a bone protruding from the inside of the big toe, creating a prominent bump on the inside of the foot around the big toe. This bump deforms the big toe moving the toe towards the second toe. In some cases, the big toe can rest under or over the second toe; this is called an "Overlapping Toe."
Definition of a Tailor's Bunion
Also referred to as a bunionette, a Tailor's bunion forms on the outside of the foot towards the joint at the little toe. This bump forms as the little toe moves towards the big toe.
A person may experience symptoms, such as soreness to the skin and painful inflammation of the big and small toe, causing the person to walk improperly. Bunions can be caused by hereditary foot deformities and arthritis. But, the most common cause of a bunion is wearing tight, pointed shoes that over time constrict the toes and push the bone outward.
