When the bone or tissue that is located at the joint at the bottom of the big toe moves out of place, bunions are formed. The big toe is forced by years of abnormal motion and pressure on the joints, so it bends towards the others and in that way is caused an often – painful lump on the joints.
The joint that is located at the base of the big toe, carries much of your body weight while you walk, and in that way bunions cause severe and constant pain. When you start feeling that your shoes are too tight for wearing, and they cause pain, it may be a sign that the joint had become so stiff and sore.

In advanced cases, patients complain of more pain, and there is also a possibility for a secondary deformation of other fingers, or secondary degenerative changes in the middle of the foot.
