Bunion surgery is an outpatient surgery that only takes 1 hour to complete under local anesthesia but can take weeks to mend. P.M. Ludewig, PT, PhD, is Associate Professor, Program in Physical Therapy, University of Minnesota, Medical School. The big toe of the foot is called the hallux.

A good rule of thumb is if it hurts, DON'T DO IT!" This statement may seem harsh but you need to let pain be your guide when returning to activity. If there is pain experienced during your activity, change to non-weight bearing activities such as cycling and swimming. If there is no pain with activity, then scale back to one half of the current time spent in that activity. A dorsoplantar radiograph with the foot under load is required.

Measurements taken from radiographs can vary from examiner to examiner; and slight deviations in the angle of the beam, placement of the cassette, and rotation of the foot can significantly affect accuracy; therefore, these studies should be used as clinical guides and not absolute indications for surgical care ( 7 , 8 ). With more significant deformity, a bunion last shoe with a broad toe box made of soft leather and a flexible sole will often relieve symptoms. Continued pain after conservative care, split size shoe requirements (one foot greater in size than the other) and deformity that greatly interferes with lifestyle are appropriate reasons for operation.

Measures included: hallux plantarflexion and abduction strength, walking performance, postural sway and forefoot plantar pressures. Multiple analysis of covariance and pairwise comparisons (p<0.05, Bonferroni adjustment) were used to investigate differences between groups, adjusting for age, sex, body mass index and foot pain. Results: Hallux plantarflexion and abduction strength was significantly reduced in those with moderate (mean differences: plantarflexion -45.8N, abduction -12.3N, p<0.001) and severe hallux valgus (plantarflexion -50.1N, p<0.001; abduction -11.2N, p=0.01) compared to controls. A significant reduction in hallux peak pressure and pressure-time integral was evident in moderate (peak pressure -90.8kPa, p<0.001) and severe hallux valgus (peak pressure -106.2kPa, p<0.001) compared to controls. Those with severe hallux valgus also demonstrated increased mediolateral postural sway in single leg stance compared to controls (3.5cm, p=0.01). This is acute bunion.

Often, treatment involves conservative steps that may include changing your shoes, padding your bunion and wearing shoe inserts. Some of the symptoms of bunions include inflammation, swelling, and soreness on the side surface of the big toe. Another type of bunion which some individuals experience is called a Tailor's Bunion, also known as a Bunionette. It is a smaller bump that forms due to the little toe moving inwards, towards the big toe. Bunions can be related to inflammation or to degenerative disease (e.g., osteoarthritis). He specializes in food, travel and health topics.
