About Bunion

Three causes of bunion

The cause of Hallux Valgus (bunion) is often believed to be genetic or a consequence of pointy-toed high heel shoes. While these are indeed part of the cause, the fundamental cause is something else, which we need to understand in order to choose the correct and effective treatment. Here are the three main causes:

1, Hindrance of reflexes

Without walking on rough surfaces that stimulate the sole in childhood, the reflexes to grab the ground and stand or walk firmly are not well- developed. This is the most common cause of Hallux Valgus (bunion).

2, Locking walk

Walking with “locked toes” to keep shoes from falling off. This particularly prevalent among children, especially when they wear shoes that are too big for them.

3, Narrow toed shoes

When scrunching toes to accomodate narrow toed shoes, the toes become deformed in able to stand firm.
