Bunion (Hallux Valgus) - Causes and Risk Factors

These factors might increase your risk of bunions:

  • High heels
    Wearing high heels forces your toes into the front of your shoes, often crowding your toes.
  • Poor fitting shoes
    People who wear shoes that are too tight, too narrow or too pointed are more susceptible to bunions.
  • Heredity
    The tendency to develop bunions might be because of an inherited structural foot defect.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
    Having this inflammatory condition can make you more susceptible to bunions
