Causes of Bunions – Bunion Surgery New York City

Causes of Bunions

Pain at the base of the big toe that appears as a bulging growth is called a bunion. Bunions can be extremely painful and can impact the quality of our life. Causes of bunions include poorly fitting shows and genetics.

One of the major causes of bunions is shoes. High heels and tight shoes that squeeze the toes promote bunion development. Bunions develop over time but may also suddenly get much worse.

X-rays are the best way to diagnose a bunion, as they reveal that bunions are an issue with bone position, rather than bone growth.

Speak with Dr. Neal Blitz to learn more about the causes of bunions and how to treat them.
