Under the direction of expert podiatrist Velimir Petkov, DPM, the team at Premier Podiatry offers cutting-edge foot and ankle solutions.

Nearly one-quarter of all adult Americans under the age of 65 suffer from foot bunions. These bony bumps appear on the side of the big toe joint and often cause chronic pain and discomfort. For millions who already have some mobility issues, this adds another obstacle. Fortunately, a myriad of non-invasive treatments is available to alleviate your bunion pain. And if these conservative treatments aren’t sufficient, your foot doctors at Premier Podiatry in NJ will offer other treatment options.

What Are Bunions?

Bunions, also known as hallux valgus, are the bumps that protrude from the side of your big toe. More than just a bump, bunions represent a misalignment of the bones in the front part of your foot.

Your big toe drifts toward your second toe, which forces the joint at the ball of your foot to stick out, leading to toe pain, foot pain and pain in the ball of your foot. Bunions develop gradually, and over time the deformed toes make it painful to walk, wear certain shoes and affect your mobility.

Sadly, bunions are a widespread condition. According to the research published on PubMed, approximately 23 percent of American adults aged 18 to 65 years have bunions. If you’re suffering from bunion pain, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Velimir Petkov at the podiatry office in Clifton to begin your bunion correction and start walking freely again.

What Are the Causes and Risk Factors for Bunions?

Bunions develop gradually for a variety of reasons and the exact causes of this foot condition have yet to be determined. However, there are several factors that seem to correlate with hallux valgus development. Some people are more prone to bunions because of their genes
