What causes bunions?
Bunions can be a hereditary defect passed on to children. It’s not unusual for kids and teenagers to have bunion surgery even without having worn a high-heel in their life. If the problem develops later in life, it’s more than likely triggered from wearing incorrect footwear. Women are particularly exposed to the problem by wearing skinny, high heeled shoes. Podiatrists all around the world squirm at the thought of women prancing around in high heels, blissfully unaware of the foot problems they’re creating for themselves. No one is immune from the condition. Victoria Bechkam has needed bunion surgery to restore the position of her big toe.
