Bunions are a common foot deformity that can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort. They are caused by a misalignment of the big toe joint, which can be very uncomfortable. Various factors, including genetics, poor foot alignment, and certain types of shoes, can cause bunions. Risk factors for bunions include having flat feet, wearing ill-fitting shoes, and having a family history of bunions.
Fortunately, there are several treatments available for bunions, including orthotics, lifestyle changes, and surgery. Hecker Sports And Regenerative Medicine, a sports medicine clinic in Fort Collins, can help people with bunions find the best treatment option.
