About Bunion

② Callus Type


The angle of the big toe remains more-or-less unchanged, while the bone at the root of the big toe grows and lookes projected.


In stead of using the tips of the toes, the root of the big toe hits the ground while walking. This “root part” continuously receives excess shock, causing the formation of a callus as a defence reaction against the shock. People with this type tend to walk with the root of the big toe, rather than with all of their toes. When the toes do not touch the ground or are curved, the root of the big toe takes the role of maintaining balance and protecting the body. There are many cases where the root of the toe develops a corn or the skin becomes thick on the side and on the sole.
