A bunion is a bony bump that commonly develops on the inside of the big toe joint. Pain, deviation, swelling and discomfort often follow the progression. The development and progression of bunions develop slowly. Pressure and dysfunction of the first ray can cause the big toe to lean toward the second toe.
Toe discomfort, or commonly described as Metatarsalgia, is a term used to describe a collection of conditions that affect the forefoot (front of the foot), the ball of the foot, and toes. Swelling, pain and discomfort such as burning, aching, zapping, sharp, shooting and throbbing are commonly felt in these areas.
