Worryingly, many patients living within the UK are unknowingly putting themselves in danger of developing painful bunions by falling in to these bunion danger zones. The following article highlights the three major bunion danger areas many people in the UK fall in to. Enjoy!

Danger Zone 1: Shoe Warnings

After countless long running sessions and walks, your feet are beginning to feel slightly sore. The trainers that were once regarded as new and top of the range have begun to show wear and tear. They once fitted you perfectly and provided you with great protection three years ago but today your toes are rubbing together and the support and suspension have all perished. Likewise, those favourite high heels you cherish have been worn one too many times in work meetings and nights out dancing. How are your toe joints feeling? If they are feeing sore and causing you discomfort then you could be in danger of developing a bunion. This is because your toe joints have suffered intense pressure caused by your heels directing your weight to your toes.

Danger Zone 2: Ligament Warnings

Do you suffer from any muscular or neurological issues? Do you have cerebral palsy? If you do then you may be at a higher risk of developing bunions. In addition, if your ligaments are causing you pain then you too may run the risk of developing bunions.

Danger Zone 3: Arthritis Warnings

How are the joints in your ankles feeling? If you already have rheumatoid arthritis and are experiencing discomfort and stiffness within your joints then you can increase your risk of developing bunions. We have seen many UK patients suffering with arthritis and we have helped relieve their pain but also and successfully, removed their bunions.
