A bunion, (medical term: Hallux Abducto Valgus) is a condition that includes a boney prominence or " Bump" along the inside of the foot at the big toe joint. There is typically some degree of mal alignment or abnormal position of the big toe as it compresses against and leans on the second toe. In severe cases (see the Primera Hall of Bunions) the second toe can rest on top of the big toe! Additionally, most people develop extra bone that contributes to the enlarged "Bump" on the side of the foot. Add it all up and you have the make up of a classic Bunion
