One of the reasons that bunions develop is because your body is not positioned properly when you walk or stand. One of the most common ways to correct this is with a bunion surgery. This will allow your body to be in its best position possible so that it will not develop pressure on your joint, thus eliminating the bunion pain that you have been dealing with.
Another one of the common causes of bunions is high arches. This is why women experience bunions during pregnancy and other times when their bodies are growing quickly. When your feet grow to a certain point, they start to curve out which puts pressure on the bones in your joint. By wearing proper shoes, wearing them during the right time of the month, and by stretching and doing physical therapy, arches can easily be fixed.
The third common cause of bunions is a high risk of developing a bunion on the same side as your wedding ring finger. Women who are pregnant often experience this condition. The solution to this problem is simple: wear special bunion support shoes, called “Podiatrist-D” shoes, during your pregnancy and throughout your pregnancy. They are made with extra padding and gel-filled straps that will reduce any discomfort that you may feel, and they will also keep your bunion in place so that it does not pop out. Once you have them, be sure to keep them with you at all times to avoid having that uncomfortable pain when you need to step into a doorway or change into a new pair of shoes.
The final cause of bunions is injury to a major joint. Swimmers are among the most at-risk people for this condition. Because of the constant movement of their feet, swimmers are constantly putting stress on their joints. Some of these painful bunions are caused by the tension in the tendons that attach the big toe to the rest of the foot. This can be fixed by simply wearing a pair of running shoes with more cushioning, or even by stretching and doing physical therapy to get the tendons loose. If your swimmer shoes are starting to give you pain, talk to a doctor to see if there is an underlying issue causing the pain.
While most of the time bunions are simply caused by over-fitting shoes, there are some exceptions. People who have a genetic predisposition for them can also end up with them. Heels that are too high can cause friction between the bones and the toes, creating a big, embarrassing problem for the person that is wearing them. There are a range of ways to shrink bunions naturally including options for bunion treatment without surgery so it pays to consult a podiatrist for options.
