Where does a bunion come from? Is it genetic? Perhaps…is it the shoes you wear? Also a possibility. The bottom line is that a bunion is usually coming from the part of your foot that’s close to your ankle. The bones are “squished” in there and what happens, often, is that one bone starts to push the other one out of the way; the bottom end of that bone is what becomes a bunion. This is precisely why a surgery to just shave down that bunion is not always that helpful. Be sure to address the midfoot, and help to make room in between each of those bones. It’s all about the cuneiforms, the navicular, and the cuboid bones. Want to learn more? Give me a call and we can talk further. There are several techniques that I use to help make more room in your midfoot, and work on that arch of yours to make walking and running that much more comfortable.
