A bunion, or hallux valgus, is commonly described as a bump on the joint of your big toe. The condition is caused by a pronated (flat) foot and an excessively flexible big toe joint. Your big toe absorbs a tremendous amount of pressure as your foot pushes away from the ground. Over time, the pressure forces your big toe to deviate or bend inward toward your baby toe.
