A bunion toe deformity is one of the most common problems treated by podiatrists. Although hereditary influence plays a major role in bunion development, shoes are often to blame. Wearing tight-fitting shoes like high heels or pointy boots will push the toes together and increase the development of bunions, hammertoes, and other toe and foot problems.
For bunion pain and swelling that doesn’t respond to these methods, surgery may be necessary.
