In brief: Bunions

Bunions are a deformity that is caused when the big toe drifts towards the lesser toes, creating a painful bump on the inside of your foot.
Unlike most conditions of the foot and ankle, bunions have limited options for conservative treatment. Shoe changes, padding, and anti-inflammatory medications are ways to temporarily manage the pain associated with bunions.
