Whenever you hear the word Bunion, the immediate conclusion is that it is an inconsequential “old lady” problem.
Bunions are extremely common and can affect all age ranges, even teenagers. Men or Women. A Bunion is a JOINT DISLOCATION deformity that happens slowly over time. It is very PAINFUL. But, the very word “bunion” just doesn’t suggest or define the seriousness of the condition. If you complain to anyone about your painful Bunion, you might get a small eye-roll. If you complain about your painful joint dislocation that no longer allows the use of shoes, you will probably get much more sympathy.
Not all bunions need surgery either. Find out your options. A consultation regarding your foot pain does not commit you to surgery.
