Re: bunion

The proper medical term for a bunion is Hallux valgus. This deformity can be hereditary or acquired through trauma or disease.
Treatments can range from none to orthotics, padding, wider shoes to surgery.

If you will do a search for bunion or hallux valgus you will be able to get more information than I can give in this space.

Hope this helps.
