Bunions can be present even at birth. Some people have inherited the trait from their parents, and some have developed them due to wearing inappropriate shoes. Bunions develop when there is an uneven distribution of pressure on the feet's joints and tendons. If the imbalance goes on, the joints in the big toe becomes unstable and starts to protrude sideways.
Inflammation aggravates pain in the bunions which usually happens when you wear tight-fitting shoes that add up to the pressure on the feet. Bunions may also be linked to joint and bone problems such as arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Do you feel like you have bunions?
