Understanding the Causes of Bunions

Bunions are a painful growth of bone and soft tissue between your first two toes. Bunions are caused by an imbalance of pressure when standing, walking, or running that results in the joint of the big toe becoming unstable. If you suffer from bunions in Sugar Land and your podiatrist is not able to relieve you of them through non-invasive methods, he may recommend surgery as a treatment option.

Watch this video to learn more about how bunions are caused, and how you can prevent and treat them. Dr. Richard Jacoby discusses what bunions are, and the primary ways bunions may form.
