Acupuncture and Massage Machine Treat Bunion
referred to as: Hallux Valgux
A bunion is the
painful swelling of the fluid-filled sac, called the bursa, at the first
joint of the big toe. A bunion occurs because of a condition called hallux
valgus, a bone displacement in which the big toe bulges out at the base
and the top of the toe points in toward the second toe. Hallux is another
term for the big toe.
Bunions are more
likely to occur in women who wear high heels with narrow, pointed toes;
people who wear poorly fitting shoes; and people with flat feet. Some
people also tend to put more stress than normal on the inside of the foot
when they run or walk, making them more prone to bunions. The tendency
toward bunions appears to run in families.
that compress the toes most often cause hallux valgus and bunions. When
the base of the big toe sticks outward, it rubs against the shoe. This
friction irritates the bursa, which causes it to become irritated and
swell. As the bunion continues to be irritated, the bursa continues to
swell and a bony growth develops. This type of friction is also more
likely to occur in people with flat, wide feet.
are the symptoms?
A bunion looks like
a swollen, red bony bump at the base of the big toe. The bunion is painful
and the skin over it becomes thick and calloused from friction against the
shoe. The skin over the bunion may break down and form an ulcer. Most
people who have bunions have them on both toes.
