What is a Bunion?

A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. It happens when the big toe pushes against the other toes, causing the joint to stick out and the toe to lean inwards. Bunions can be painful and make it hard to find comfortable shoes. They often develop due to wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes, genetics, or certain foot conditions. Bunions can also occur on the little toe joint (bunionette).

Some Causes of Bunions

  • The big toe joint becomes unstable, causing deformity due to prolonged abnormal pressure and motion.
  • Years of unusual pressure and motion affect the big toe joint, leading to deformity.
  • Flawed foot development.
  • Abnormal walking pattern.
  • Foot injuries
  • Improper fitting shoes (the most common cause of a bunion)
  • Inherited foot structure.
  • Natural deformities from birth
  • Neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy or post-polio syndrome

Treatment options

Treatment will depend on the severity of your bunion and the degree of pain you experience. Early treatment is recommended to decrease risk of joint deformities.

Conservative Treatment

These are nonsurgical treatments that relieve the pain and pressure of a bunion.

Changing Shoes

Wear airy and comfortable shoes with plenty of space for toes

Padding and Taping

Cushioning helps reduce pain, enabling you to continue your regular activities. Consult your doctor about taping and padding your foot to promote a natural position, relieving pain and reducing pressure on the bunion.

  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others)
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen or naproxen
  • Cortisone injections
Physical Therapy

Ultrasound therapy or whirlpool baths provide relief from pain and inflammation.


Shoe inserts (orthotics) can be very helpful in controlling abnormal movement of the foot. This helps reduce many major symptoms and further prevents a bunion from getting worse. Some people might find relief in over-the-counter arch supports, and others may benefit from prescription orthotics.

Surgical Options

A bunionectomy is effective in many cases and it involves:

  • Removal of the swollen tissue from the area surrounding the big toe joint
  • Straightening of the big toe by removing a part of the bone
  • Permanently rejoining the bones of the affected joint

After certain bunion procedures, the patient might resume walking right away, while in other cases, it could take a few weeks or more. Wearing suitable footwear post-recovery is crucial to avoid symptom reoccurrence.

Important Notes

Surgery is typically advised when a bunion is causing considerable pain and discomfort. However, it's important to note that bunionectomy, being a type of surgery, comes with its own set of risks.

  • Poor healing
  • Developing an infection
  • Losing some feeling in your foot
  • Continued pain
  • Developing a new bunion

These are some risks involved, therefore it is wiser to consider conservative treatment.
