Bunions

Bunions, also called hallux valgus, are bony bumps on the side of the big toe.  They are caused by the hallux (the big toe) leaning towards the second toe instead of pointing straight ahead.  This leaning throws the bones out of alignment and produces the bunion’s “bump”.  It is a progressive disorder with symptoms usually appearing at later stages – although some people never experience the symptoms!
