Bunions are common and treatable
A common foot deformity, bunions can cause serious pain and discomfort. Most people don't think to seek treatment until the pain of the bunion is unbearable or simple things like wearing a pair of shoes or walking becomes difficult.
Without treatment bunions can become progressively worse over the years. Structures of the bones will change and eventually protrude outward.
Is your bunion genetic?
Believe it or not, bunions are caused by an inherited mechanical failure in the structure of the foot. When symptoms start to progress seeking the aid of a experienced podiatrist will help you regain a life that is pain free.
