Everything You Need to Know About Bunions
They're Typically Located Along Your Big Toe
If you're dealing with foot pain, bunions are easy to spot. Unlike other foot conditions such as corns, calluses, or ingrown toenails, bunions are predominantly found along your big toe.
They're Extremely Common
Did you know that approximately 23% of people aged 18 to 65 live with bunions? You're not alone — and you've got a Romeo, MI, team to help.
They Can Be Treated
Bunions are treatable! We offer plenty of options to alleviate your concerns, including non-surgical choices like orthotics and anti-inflammatory medicine, as well as bunion surgery.

What Causes Bunions?
Wearing compressed or narrow shoes like high heels can contribute to bunion development. As a result, women are likelier to experience bunions — but men can absolutely develop them too.
Have you recently hurt your toe, tendons, or any other part of your foot? Or do you live with arthritis? It's possible that either one can impact how you walk or can change your foot structure, creating the perfect conditions for bunions to form.
Even if you've only worn loose, comfortable footwear, you can still develop bunions. That's because bunions can have a genetic component, and can be caused simply by the way your feet naturally formed.
How Can Bunion Surgery Help Me?
Many non-surgical bunion treatments, like orthotics and anti-inflammatories, can do wonders to alleviate your discomfort. However, at the end of the day, they only address the symptoms — not the root of your problem.
With surgery from Dr. Corbin, you can have a real solution to your foot deformity and begin enjoying life without daily pain. Not to mention, you can also prevent more advanced symptoms, like tendonitis or nerve damage.
