A common question asked by an orthopedic surgeon during a new patient visit is: where exactly is your pain?  The physician may ask several other questions about the pain: Can you point with one finger to the spot that hurts the most?  Does the pain travel anywhere?   

Bunions Causes and Treatment

[pb_row ][pb_column span="span8"][pb_divider el_title="Divider 3" div_border_width="2" div_border_style="solid" div_border_color="#E0DEDE" appearing_animation="0" ][/pb_divider][pb_text el_title="bunion" width_unit="%" enable_dropcap="no" appearing_animation="0" ]

Many people think a bunion is a simple bone prominence by the big toe. Actually, a bunion can be a progressive deformity of bones and joints.

These mal-aligned structures can cause a painful “bump,” but can also cause functional problems, leading to other regions of foot pain. 

Bunions develop slowly. Pressure on the big toe joint causes the big toe to lean toward the second toe. Over time, the normal structure of the bone changes, resulting in the bunion bump. This deformity will gradually increase and may make it painful to wear shoes or walk.

Golf is a hobby for some, a pastime for others, and a passion for many.  Any day a golfer is kept off the course due to an injury is a day wasted, according to Dr. Bill Ward, an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedic Specialists of Oakland County.
