Where do bunions come from?
At the joint where the big toe meets the foot, bone and tissue can form that, over a period of years, forces the big toe to bend towards the rest of the toes causing painful “bump” and joint pain.
Scientists have not yet found a clear cause of bunions and though you may have heard that they are a result of poorly fitting shoes, that is not the whole story. Bunions often run in families, with women developing them more often than men.
