Concern over the development of bunions (Hallux Valgus) is very common.
The deviation of the first toe and increased size of the first metatarsal joint, can occur for many different reasons. It can start in childhood, or later in life.

Podiatrists offer conservative treatment in the form of exercise, footware advice, orthotics and injection therapy.
A biomechanical assessment is required prior to any treatment.</
