Bunions - Hallux Valgus
Bunions generally describe enlargement and pain involving the bones that make up the great toe joint. Several varieties occur.
The most common is deformity is hallux valgus. The second type, hallux rigidus, is predominantly an arthritic problem.
Hallux valgus is an outward deviation of the big toe toward the little toes and a rather large bony prominence that develops due to the gradual dislocation of the big toe joint.
This type of bunion is called hallux valgus and often hereditary. This is one of the most common types of deformity that occurs in the foot.
