According to Timothy Mooney, DPM about 10-25% of people have bunions. They can cause so much pain that it hurts to walk. Many people believe that tight, uncomfortable, narrow-toed or high-heeled shoes cause bunions. Experts say most bunions are hereditary, however, shoes can aggravate them. In the U.S. and other shoe-wearing societies, people start noticing bunions in their twenties or thirties.

Here are some tips to help manage bunions: 1) Make sure there is a thumb's width of room between the tip of your big toe and the end of your shoe. 2) Don't wear high heels or pointy toes. 3) Purchase orthotics or splints. "Surgery is an option if your bunion is affecting your quality of life. It  can take six to eight weeks to recover," says Dr. Mooney.
