Causes: Bunions are more likely caused by hyperpronation of the foot (arches that collapse and ankles that roll in).

Symptoms: Pushing off straight ahead with their first metatarsal and big toe, they push off with the second metatarsal across the big toe.  With every s tep, the big toe is pushed toward the second toe.  After years of walking this way, the joint finally gives way.

Prevention & Care: Reduce hyperpronation.  If done properly, your gait will change so that you will walk with less outward rotation of your feet which will reduce the sideways pressure on the big toe.  This will prevent the bunions from worsening, and it may appear reduced in size because of less irritation and swelling.  Several people with early onset bunions have reported them to reduce in size or even disappear because of improved gait mechanics.
