Bunions are a very common and often painful condition.

Recent study also showed that 90% of hallux valgus patients had at least one family member affected by the presence of hallux valgus and it might affect some family members across three generations. This is exactly in line with Coughlin and Jones 5 who reported that a positive family history is the underlying factor for hallux valgus deformities. Hallux valgus is considered by many to be a prevalent condition in the females. This present study found that wearing high-heels is not a predisposing factor to hallux valgus. Instead, a family history appeared to be a major concern for developing hallux valgus in Chinese females. And in the preceding period, actress Michelle Yeoh was also troubled by the hallux valgus.

The actual meaning of the Latin word hallux" is the great toe." The Latin word abducto" used in this term refers to the big toe moving toward the second toe. Therefore, we will say that hallux valgus" refers to the abnormal outward turning of the bone of the big toe joint, also known as the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Most of the time, hallux valgus deformity is accompanied by soft tissue enlargement consisting of a fluid-filled sac (called a bursa) under the skin. You may also have heard the Latin term hallux rigidus," which is a completely different foot condition, that of having a big toe that is stiff with a very limited range of motion. Hallux valgus symptoms show up in different ways. The most obvious symptom is the turning of the big toe toward the other toes. Another factor related to heredity is flat feet.

Doctors may plainly examine the foot and listen to the patient recount what he's been feeling. Paracetamol and other anti-inflammatory drugs are often recommended for intake as they greatly help in relieving the pain and swelling. It is important to consult an expert physician for proper treatment recommendation because, when left untreated Bunion (Hallux Valgus) will keep on worsening and causing pain to the person. There is even have a foot health forum which you can use for free to ask podiatrists on foot related questions.

If your surgeon has opted to use a plaster cast, the recovery process will be slower. These bunions are medically called, "Hallux Valgus", and they are anomalies or abnormalities in a person's skeletal system. They are an accumulation of bone and tissue cells which swells into a lump or bump on the foot.

Forefoot surgery to correct a hallux valgus is necessary when other conservative forms of treatment, such as splints or the use of other orthopaedic devices, have failed. There are three types of hallux valgus surgeries, each used for different degrees of severity of the forefoot's malposition. Most importantly, patients should actively be aware of the types of shoes worn after surgery, as it is not uncommon for hallux valgus to be caused by improper fitting shoes. The easiest form of forefoot surgery is the so-called minimally invasive surgery.

The ball" of the foot is essentially a continuation of the sole of the foot, with longitudinal structures extending to the toes while traversing the MTP joints ( 21 ). The skin in this region is thick and is actually the distal insertion site for the plantar aponeurosis, which provides a fibrous tunnel for the flexor tendons and also inserts into the plantar plate ( 21 ). At the core of the ball of the foot is the phalangeal apparatus that consists of the proximal phalanx and the plantar plate which inserts into the base of the proximal phalanx and the sides of the metatarsal heads ( 28 ). Dorsally, the extensor apparatus broadens over the MTP joint while the interossei, digital nerves, and vessels flank the metatarsals along their length.
