Bunion (Hallux Abducto Valgus)

Known to most people as the painful bump on the side of the big toe joint. However, if left untreated can be detrimental to your daily living, as it can become more painful and functionally harder to move (sometimes fused!). This condition can lead to a broader foot type, difficulty in fitting in shoes, hard/painful skin, and Arthritic changes.

Various factors can lead to such deformity. Such as:

  • Wearing tight/narrow footwear
  • High heels
  • Flat feet
  • Blunt trauma
  • Repetitive trauma
  • Birth defect
  • Inherited through family members.


At Your Foot And Ankle Clinic, your podiatrist will assess your body by carrying out a full biomechanical assessment. CUSTOMISED PRESCRIPTION foot orthoses may be designed depending on the severity and presentation of your bunion.  We also educate and provide footwear that will be best be suited for your foot type

As with many deformities, the earlier we diagnose and treat it the better the results are likely to be achieved. However, as everyone is unique, the time and intensity of results may vary from person to person.
