Besides the definition, bunions can vary in terms of how and why they develop, who gets them and when, and what symptoms they may cause. One thing that everyone can agree on with bunions is they are hard to ignore, especially when theyre painful. Katherine Raspovic, DPM , a podiatric surgeon at MedStar Washington Hospital Center , has some tips when it comes to bunions. My best advice is to have an evaluation with a foot specialist when you first see a bunion developing or have any pain in your big toe joint, says Dr. Raspovic. There are a few conservative treatment options that can help improve discomfort. Shoes are often the cause of bunions, including high heels and shoes with narrow toes. Although, some who wear high heels never develop bunions. One of the easiest ways to prevent bunions is to wear the proper shoe, according to Dr. Raspovic.
