Orthaheel Solutions For Bunions (Hallux Abducto Valgus)
A Bunion is a boney lump that gradually develops on the big toe joint over many years. Bunions can sometimes be very
painful and at other times exhibit no pain at all. The common cause of this condition is a combination of genetic factors and our foot function.
Interestingly, footwear is not the common cause as generally believed. Excess pronation places excess weight over the big toe joint while
walking, and combined with a forefoot (or Metatarsal bone) adducted position, causes a Bunion to develop.
ORTHAHEEL controls excess pronation (although not forefoot adductus) which is a common factor causing Bunions. ORTHAHEEL redistributes the
weight evenly over the foot to prevent (or reduce) the gradual growth of a bunion. ORTHAHEEL is very successful in reducing symptoms with painful
Bunion conditions. Sometimes, surgery may be indicated.
