A painful bunion is a deformity where the 1st metatarsal is deviated medially and the great toe drifts laterally.

The bunion pathology increases with age and is sped up with wearing high heeled shoes.

The reason people develop bunions is multifactorial. Bunions are mostly a hereditary entity.

Some patients complain that there is

ball of foot pain

and pain on the side of the big toe joint.

Bunion Treatment in Orange County


It is best to avoid ever developing bunions.

Wearing orthotics may limit the pronatory force that plays into causing a bunion deformity. Once a bunion has developed, orthotics may be used to slow down the progression of the deformity. If symptoms persist, wider shoes can be bought to accommodate for the bunion pain.
