A bunion is a bony bump on the side of the foot that develops at the base of the big toe. This area of the foot can become inflamed and swollen, causing foot pain. Bunions most often develop in women and older adults. Over time, the affected joint may become stiff, painful, and deformed. Bunions and the pain they cause can lead to problems with shoe fit and difficulty walking. Physical therapists help people with bunions reduce their pain, increase the function of the big toe, improve muscle strength, and restore walking ability.
