Bunions can cause a number of problems, how can you prevent them?

Do you feel pain in your big toe joint while walking, but haven't seen any changes yet? Hallux valgus disease (bunion) begins with a relatively inconspicuous minor pain, bruising, and a slightly swollen joint. If you feel that the pain is "just from bad shoes," you are probably right. Wearing unsuitable footwear long-term can result in an unpleasant deformity that could end up in surgery. A bunion also arises as a result of a deformed arch of the foot or flat feet.

Bunions can cause a number of problems, how can you prevent them?

HOW BUNIONS MANIFEST

It is a disease characterized by the unnatural position of the big toe, in which the toe curves and forms bone growth in the joint area. As a result of this incorrect position, painful bruises develop on the big toe. The big toe can begin to rotate and joint is damaged in many ways. This is a very serious problem that has several degrees of damage, which can result in surgery. Prevent these problems in time with appropriate prevention to prevent other problems, such as knee, head, hip, neck, or back pain, which a bunion can cause.

BUNIONS MAINLY AFFECT WOMEN

This deformity occurs more often at a older age and if often a consequence of wearing unsuitable shoes. The statistics are stark and clearly demostrate that the disability mainly affects women. But this does not mean that men will avoid this problem completely. It is important to choose suitable footwear that is orthopedic, provides enough space for your toes and ensures healthy walking.

HEALTHY SHOES AS PREVENTION AND TREATMENT

Since every foot is different, a shoe that can adapt to any foot is appropriate. Orthopedic velcro slippers meet these requirements. Women's slippers, which are specially modified on the side with an elastic band, give enough space for the big toe joint.

You should choose shoes made of breathable natural materials and with quality soles so that your foot won't slip in them. Shoes with non-slip soles can save not only your feet, but also your hands from falling.

To support the correct position of the big toe, special bandages, orthoses and insoles can also be used, which you can wear with any of our shoes at Woolville. Plenty of toe space is available in our women's and men's summer slippers, which have a modified toe cap with an extended shape. Thanks to the comfortable extended tip, you will have your toes in the right position, thus preventing any subsequent deformation.

Don't let this seemingly insignificant problem result in pain culminating in surgery and start taking care of your feet by wearing appropriate healthy footwear. You can also help yourself with regular exercises that will help strengthen the ligaments, tendons and muscles of the foot.
