Short Description of Bunions

Bunions are bony bumps that occur on the joint at the base of the big toe. It happens when a few of the bones in the front portion of your foot are misaligned. This result to the tip of the big toe getting pulled forward the smaller toes and it forces the joint at the base of the big toe to stick out. The skin over the affected area may be sore and red.

Symptoms of Bunions

  • Presence of a bump on the outside of the base of the big toe
  • Presence of tenderness and swelling including soreness in the area around the big toe joint
  • Formation of corns and calluses in the area where the first and second toes rub against one another
  • Ongoing pain or on and off pain
  • Inability or limited movement of the big toe

About Bunions

Bunions are a painful bony bump the forms on the inner portion of the foot at the big toe joint. Medically speaking they are known as hallux valgus. The condition develops slowly and results from pressure on the big toe that results in it leaning toward the second toe. Over a period of time, there are changes that occur in the normal structure of the bone and this results to the bunion bump. The deformity will increase gradually and may make it painful to wear shoes or even walking. Who are the people that can get bunions? Actually, anyone can get a bunion but they tend to be more common in women. This is due to the fact that women more often wear tight, narrow shoes that tend to squeeze the toes together. When this happens, the likelihood of bunion formation is much higher and can cause pain symptoms too. In most cases, pain from the bunion may be relieved by resorting to using wider shoes that feature enough toe room as well as using other simple treatments that can minimize pressure on the big toe region.

Etiology of Bunions

The big toe of the foot is made up of a couple of joints. The bigger of the two is called the metatarsophalangeal joint or MTP; this is where the first long bone of the foot known as the metatarsal meets the first bone of the toe or the phalanx. Over time, bunions develop at the MTP joint. A bunion forms when the bones that comprise the MTP joint are misaligned: the long metatarsal bone shifts toward the inside of the foot and the phalanx bones of the big toe angle toward the second toe. The MTP joint gets bigger and protrudes from within the forefoot. This can help form an enlarged joint that is most often inflamed. The term “bunion” originated from the Greek word that means turnip, and the bump on the inside of the foot normally look red and swollen similar to that of a turnip.

Causes of Bunions

Bunions are caused by:

  • Ill fitting shoes more particularly shoes that feature narrow, pointed toe box that forces the toe into the wrong position
  • Genetics – There are some people that inherit feet that are more prone to getting bunions because of the structure and shape
  • Presence of an inflammatory condition like rheumatoid arthritis, or a neuromuscular disease like polio can help increase the likelihood

Progression of Bunions

Bunions do not begin as large deformities but normally start out small and get worse over time. The progression worsens if the patient continues to wear, tight and narrow footwear. Due to the MTP joint flexing with every step, the bigger the bunion tends to get and the more pain symptoms experienced not to mention more challenging it is to walk. An advanced bunion can really alter the normal anatomy or appearance of the affected foot. For severe bunions, the big toe could angle all the way under or over the second toe. Continuous pressure from the big toe can force the second toe out of alignment, resulting it to come in contact with the third toe. The formation of calluses also happens due to the toes rubbing against one another causing severe discomfort and pain when walking.

Diagnosis of Bunions

The doctor will first look at the medical history and perform a physical examination of the foot. While the doctor may easily diagnose your bunion based on the appearance of the foot and the accompanying symptoms such as pain and redness, it is possible that he might still order an x-ray examination as well to help with the diagnosis.

X-Rays – These offer images of dense structures like bone. An x-ray can help your doctor check the severity of the condition as well as assess the alignment of the toes and for damage to the MTP joint. As a rule, the alignment of your toes changes when you are sitting or standing. The doctor will order an x-ray while you are in the standing position so as to assess more clearly the misalignment of the bones of the foot. The x-ray not only will show severity but also how to correct the bunion as well.

Types of Bunions

Adolescent Bunions

Aside from the common bunion, there are other types known and as the name suggests, new bunions that happen to young people are known as adolescent bunions. The condition is more common in girls between the ages of 10 and 15 years of age. While it is true that a bunion in an adult can restrict the motion of the MTP joint, a young individual with a new bunion can normally move the big toe both up and down. However, the condition may still be painful and can make wearing shoes a bit difficult.

Bunionette

Also known as “tailor’s bunion, this occurs on the outside of the foot near the base of the little tow. While it is in a different area on the foot, a Bunionette is without a doubt a bunion. You could get a painful bursitis and a hard corn or callus over the bump.

Bursitis

In some scenarios, an enlarged MTP joint can lead to a condition known as bursitis, which is essentially a painful state wherein the fluid-filled sac or bursa that serve to cushion the bone near the joint becomes inflamed. This can also lead to chronic pain and arthritis if the smooth articular cartilage that covers the joint also becomes damaged from the joint not gliding very well.

Prevention

Due to the fact that poorly fitting shoes is normally the main culprit when it comes to bunions it is vital that new shoes fit properly. It is only right that the shoes you wear fit your properly. As a rule, it is recommended that you select only new shoes that feature wide insteps, broad toes and soft soles. It is also recommended to avoid shoes that are too short, tight, or sharply pointed and those that feature heels that are longer than a couple of inches. The higher the heels, the more pressure it creates on the forefoot and therefore the likelihood of injury or bunions.
