Women are interesting creatures. They mostly think of esthetic problems rather than of the root of the problem. Probably, because it is easier to resolve or requires almost no work from a person who got this problem. 

Let’s talk about our feet and some of the problems that are considered esthetic problems, which in reality are much more. We are talking about bunions. 

Bunions are a symptom of a progressive bone disorder. They appear as a bony bump at the base of the big toe joint.

This problem occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore. Shoes that crowd the toes can increase the risk of symptoms, but they do not cause bunions directly.

Some people think that bunions could be inherited, but I would like to point out that despite the fact that my Grandma and Mom have severe bunions, I still have a child looking perfectly shaped feet.

And why is this?

Simply because I studied the architecture of the body and understand the importance of the body basis which is our feet. Any tiny little change in this complicated structure (26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments) will affect the whole structure above, which is our ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, whole spine, including low back and neck and even position of our head!

What do we do?

First, we assess how we walk, which part of our shoes gets overused and which is intact by looking at our old shoes. 

Let’s test

  1. Middle of the sole of your shoes
  2. Inner part
  3. The inner part closer to the toes and the outer part of the heel   
  4. Outer part
  5. Under your toes

Now comment on what did you find out, which number corresponds to your specific problem
