Recently, Amal Clooney (upper left) drew negative attention from the unatrractive bunions poking out from her otherwise-flawless ensemble. The bunion is a fairly common, painful, enlargement of the foot, caused by swelling of the big toe joint. It is most commonly caused by faulty foot biomechanics that are typically inherited. Other causes may include arthritis, trauma, and inflammatory diseases. However, narrow, pointy shoes are known to aggravate the condition.
Dr. Scholl’s recommends retarding their progression by selecting shoes with a wide toe-box, wearing insoles and cushioning to help alleviate discomfort, and always wearing well-fitting shoes.
