Bunions: 4 Stages of Development



Here the 4 stages of bunion development are discussed. The emphasis is on stabilizing the bunion in Stage 2 for as long as possible. In most cases, rapid increase in the size of the bunion does not occur until Stage 3 due to the retrograde forces on the bunion as the big toe pushes off the ground in a misaligned position. The vital importance of simple, perhaps too simple for this high tech world, toe separators can not be emphasized enough.
