Bunion |Non-Surgical Treatment | Try Vancouver Orthotics
A bunion (hallux valgus) is a structural deformity of the bones and the joint between the foot and big toe, and may be painful. A bunion is an enlargement of bone or tissue around the joint at the base of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint). The big toe may turn in toward the second toe (angulation), and the tissues surrounding the joint may be swollen and tender.

A bunion is a boney bump that forms on the joint of the big toe. They form when your big toe is pushed up against your other toes, forcing the joint of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might appear to be red and sore. The exact cause is unclear however, bunions may develop as a result of genetics, stress on your foot from wearing shoes that are too small or a medical condition, such as arthritis. At Vancouver Orthotics we offer natural bunion relief and treatment, without the use of surgery. The use of custom orthotic inserts can successfully treat and even prevent uncomfortable and painful bunions. A bunionette is a boney bump that forms on the joint of the pinky toe. Much less common than a bunion, bunionettes, or Tailor's bunions, are caused by the enlargement the fifth (and last) metatarsal bone.
