INJURY PREVENTION

Bunions

Bunions

Bunions are a boney lump that forms around the side of the big toe joint often referred to as a Hallux Valgus.


They are formed by a combination of biomechanical behavior (excessive forefoot roll), genetics and/or ill fitting footwear.



How Profeet can help:

1
BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS

runner's knee analysis

We can see how the foot functions and the possible causes of the bunion from a biomechanical perspective and thus reduce the risk that footwear and sports will make things worse.

2
CUSTOM INSOLES

runner's knee - custom insoles

Insoles will help to stabilise and support the foot, reducing pronation (foot roll) and improving the foot's position within the shoe which in turn reduces pressure on the bunion.

3
FOOTWEAR

footwear

Ill-fitting footwear is one of biggest contributors to bunions.
Shoes that are too tight in the toe area will restrict normal toe alignment and flexion. The correct volume, shape, profile and function is key.
