BUNION

A bunion, also known as hallux valgus, results when the big toe points towards the second toe and results in inflammation of the tissue surrounding the joint. The inflammation causes the joint to become swollen and tender, making everyday activities like walking or jogging very painful. Read More…

Bunions are much more common in females than in men. This leads most to believe that bunions are often time caused by wearing tight fitting shoes or heels. Genetics also plays an important role in determining the individual’s susceptibility to developing the condition.

Often the bunion is not painful and the individual leads a normal active life. Other times the bunion can be very painful, even debilitating. Pain is usually very achy and typically radiates to the toes and along the arch of the foot. Due to the abnormal positioning of the bones in the foot, sharp nerve pains could also be present.

KT Tape can help correct this misaligned joint to relieve pain and pressure over time, as well as increase blood flow to the area for increased anti-inflammatory effect and pain relief. Unrestricted footwear should always be chosen for those with bunions. Surgery is another option for those with serious pain and worsening symptoms.
