35-year-old New York City resident Denise Maione-Schwind has undergone ‘Cinderella surgery,’ or a Bunionplasty, to correct the bony bump on the side of her left foot that has been keeping her from comfortably wearing high heels. Determined not to wear flats on a night out, the flight attendant would often spend her evenings at home to avoid pain caused by the bunion. Despite the severity of the procedure, Denise was able to walk within a week. Since having fully recovered, Denise now happily wears any shoe she desires without having to endure any pain. The NYC resident even hopes to one day run the New York Marathon, which would have been a difficult and painful feat prior to surgery. 

To avoid extended pain, consider bunion treatment as soon as possible. For more information about bunion treatments, consult with podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

What is a Bunion?

A bunion is an enlargement of the base joint of the toe that connects to the foot. The enlargement is formed of swollen tissue or boney growth. This swelling is caused by a shifting of the bones in the big toe inward, impacting the other toes of the foot. The area around the base of the big toe may become inflamed, red, and/or painful.

Formation

Genetics – people who are susceptible to bunions are often genetically predisposed.

Stress on the feet – wearing improperly fitting shoes or running and walking with improper form may cause stress on the feet. Wearing high heeled shoes puts the weight from the body onto the toes, causing further stress and bone displacement.

Diagnosis

A podiatrist who specializes in foot structure and bio-mechanics will be able to diagnose bunions.

Blood Tests - testing the blood for gout or arthritic conditions can help identify the causes.

Radiological Exam – a podiatrist will request an exam to identify the bunion by taking a look at the bone structure. If the x-ray shows an enlargement of the joint near the base of the toe, this usually indicates a bunion.

Victoria BeckhamCelebrity Victoria Beckham is known for wearing heels all the time, even wearing wedge sneakers during her open at a Los Angeles Dodgers game back in 2007.  As a result, Beckham has contended with bunions, with her condition becoming worse.

“Vic’s been advised that her treatment must be done on both her feet ASAP, otherwise, in less than two years, it could cause serious problems,” an insider told British magazine Heat. With her feet susceptible, Beckham may undergo surgery to correct her bunions or wind up ditching heels for flats. “She’s relenting and saying she would be swayed to do it this winter. At least at that time of year, it’s easier to keep her feet under wraps and wear flats,” an insider said. If Beckham’s feet do indeed worsen, she may not be able to wear heels ever again.

Having bunions can be a painful experience, but they are often treatable. If you’re seeking relief from a bone deformity like bunions, you can contact a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can diagnose your problem and help to minimize your discomfort.

What is a Bunion?

A bunion is formed of swollen tissue or boney growth enlargement, usually located at the base joint of the toe that connects to the foot. The swelling occurs by the bones in the big toe shifting inward, which impacts the other toes of the foot. This causes the area around the base of the big to become inflamed and often painful.

Why do Bunions Form?

· Genetics – susceptibility to bunions are often hereditary, particularly among Caucasians

· Stress on the feet – poorly fitted and uncomfortable footwear that place undue stress on feet, such as heels and stilettos, can cause bunions to form

According to new research published by the Journal Arthritis Care & Research, bunions and many other common foot disorders seem to be inherited particularly among white men and women of European descent. Researchers looked at foot bunions, and lesser toe deformities amongst 1,370 study participants. They found that 32 percent of the participants had bunions, and 30 percent has lesser toe deformities. "These new findings highlight the importance of furthering our understanding of what causes greater susceptibility to these foot conditions, as knowing more about the pathway may ultimately lead to early prevention or early treatment," study researcher Dr. Marian Hannan, of Harvard Medical School and Hebrew Senior Life.

Bunions themselves are a common problem people face. If you are experiencing toe pain or foot pain that you think might be related to bunions, it is recommended to seek the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care.  Dr. Salama can examine your bunions, diagnose the condition, and provide the appropriate treatment options to you.
