Bunions (Hallux Valgus)
Bunions are a very common and painful condition of the foot. A bunion, hallux valgus, is a lump or protrusion on the side or top of the joint of the large toe and can be inflamed, swollen and painful around the joint with pain sometimes extending down the inside of the foot. The lump may be associated with an additional growth of the bone of the joint of the big toe or an enlargement of the joint with swelling, inflammation and pain. A bursar (fluid filled sac) may also overlie the joint causing further foot pain. Bursars require treatment from a Podiatrist


Bunions are often genetic but also may be caused or aggravated by the wearing of footwear that is too tight and by heels that are too high for normal walking. Distortion of the large toe joint causing the bunion may also displace the line of the second toe causing it to claw and form a hammer toe. This clawing may then cause the top of the toe joint to rub on the shoe and form a corn or callous.


Bunion Treatment

Properly fitting footwear with adequate width and depth in the toe box. Shoes with laces or buckles are more supportive and help to prevent the bunion from worsening.
Shoes should be as flat as is comfortable. Do not wear heels that are too high.
Bunion pads, bunion shields and bunion sleeves normally incorporate a soft gel protector and treat by reducing pressure and relieving pain.
Prolyne Technogel pressure protection pads are unique and versatile self adhesive polyurethane pads that adhere to the skin and conform to the shape of the bunion protecting against pressure and friction and relieving pain.
Conventional padding materials like fleecy web, chiropody felt and tubular foam can be cut to size and used to protect the bunion.
Hallux valgus night splints help straighten the joint and may prevent further deterioration.
If marked pronation is present orthotics should be used
The use of a good foot moisturiser like CCS Cream or Flexitol Moisturising Foot Cream keeps the skin soft, soothes and prevents dryness.
Anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen or Aspirin may help relieve inflammation and pain. Seek advice from your Pharmacist or Doctor if you are uncertain about their use.
Surgical treatment may be necessary in more serious cases. Seek the advice of your Podiatrist
