Have you been told you have bunions? Not sure what you can do to make sure your bunions don't get worse? Bunions occur when our big toe drifts inward with slight rotation. This can cause pain and discomfort in the big toe joint and lead to difficulty with everyday tasks such as walking or standing barefoot. The great news is that several things can be done to assist with improving your big toe mobility and strengthening the joint and surrounding musculature to help your bunions.
