Hallux Valgus, commonly known as a Bunion, is one of the most common progressive forefoot deformities worldwide. A bunion is a bump, which develops at the joint of the big toe—the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint. The big toe is made up of two joints. The larger of the two is the MTP, where the first long bone of the foot (metatarsal) meets the first bone of the toe (phalanx).
Bump formation happens slowly over a long period and finally progresses when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of alignment. Consequently, the long metatarsal bone bend toward the inside of the foot, and the phalanx bones of the big toe inclines toward the second toe, while The MTP joint gets larger and bulges out from the inside of the forefoot.
