foot of gout patientYou hear about it all the time. Or, you go through this personally – eating something, anything all day long, drowning in chocolate or any other food that honestly feels like it’s helping you get through your day.

Here’s some of the major foot & toe problems that may have you rubbing your feet. But no worries, they won’t hurt for long if you just follow these steps.

Bunion

A bunion is commonly understood to be a bony bump at the base of the big toe that causes that toe to lean inward and crowd against the    others. Bunions can occur for a number of reasons, but a common cause is wearing shoes that fit too tightly. They can also develop as a  result  of inheritance, stress on your foot or arthritis.  Treatments are aimed at temporary pain relief and can include: changes in shoe wear, pads for cushioning, medication, icing, orthopedic devices, and activity modification. If non-surgical treatments fail to relieve bunion pain and when the pain of a bunion interferes with daily activities, surgery may be a necessary measure to take.
