MUSKEGON, Mich. — Bunions: They’re not exactly good looking, and they can also be very painful.

Bunions are a bony bump at the base of the big toe. They are caused by a number of factors, including shoes that are too tight, poor foot mechanics, bone deformities, flat feet, and arthritis. 

We asked Dr. Brandon King from Orthopaedic Associates of Muskegon to tell us more about this painful condition and how it is treated.
