BUNIONS GET WORSE WITH TIME

In almost all patients bunions get worse with time.  This means the structure of your foot changes on the inside. 

OTHER PARTS OF THE FOOT BECOME DAMAGED

As the bunion worsens it causes other secondary problems to develop including:

  • Deformity to the second toe

  • Damage inside the joint

  • Stretching of the ligaments and tendons around the joint

  • The foot begins to function badly causing calluses 

  • Many people may develop neuromas
