Bunions are extremely common. They typically present themselves as a bony protrusion on the inside of the foot by the big toe joint. Some people may develop a bump on the outside of the foot by the pinky toe. These are referred to as a Tailor’s Bunion or bunionette. Bunions often develop as a result of poor foot biomechanics, arthritis, or from wearing shoes that are too small or tight.
Stress on the joint of the big toe may cause swelling and pressure inside a shoe, which may cause severe pain along the side of the foot and in the big toe. If the bunion is large it may cross over or under the 2nd toe and it may become difficult to find shoes that fit properly.
