A bunion is a hard bony bump that can form at the base of your big toe. Studies show that people with bunions are more likely to experience hip pain, knee pain, foot pain and lower back pain. Luckily, there are preventative measures that you can take to avoid bunions. For example, exercises that improve your flexibility and strengthen your toes and feet can stop or slow the progression of bunions.*
Prevent bunions with a simple exercise such as placing a towel on the floor and picking it up with your toes. If you already have a bunion, try shoe inserts to help position your foot correctly.
