Bunions are large, inflamed toe joints usually found on the outward side of the large toe. The area around the bunion will become sore, red and irritated and the joint itself will become swollen. Sometimes the big toe will turn into the second toe causing displacement. Bunions are also related to large bumps on the side of the bursal sac on the joint of the toe.

Bunions can be caused by inherited structural imbalances. This means that if your parents suffered from bunions, there is a good chance that you may as well.
It is very common when a person has bunions that the big toe will move inward. This can be a problem for your feet because the natural balance of your feet gets upset and other bones and ligaments can be pulled out of alignment as well. Other parts of your feet then have to overcompensate, and then they become out of balance and possibly inflamed.
There are a variety of irritants that aggravate your feet and lead to bunions, including weight gain, incorrect shoe support, and arthritis. Any sort of activity where your feet are having excessive movement without the proper support can irritate your condition.
Arch supports can offer feet with bunions the correct support to help alleviate pressure from the toes and align the feet in the appropriate positioning. This means you can reclaim all those activities you used to love, like sports, dancing, etc.
