What causes stiffness in toes while suffering from bunions?
In my opinion bunions are the most likely cause ma'am, pls read below
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. From the given picture, it does look like you do have bunions which is most probably hallux valgus, usually caused by wearing tight or ill-fitted shoes (usually heels and other such pointed in front footwear). What happens in hallux valgus is that the bones that form the base of the first/great toe are pushed towards the other toes, causing then to move closer and thus restricting movement (not always, but quite often).
This could very well be the cause for your presentation, but then again, I cannot be sure without an X-ray of the region to confirm the cause. But the most likely cause based on the information at hand are the bunions ma'am.
I hope I have explained things in a manner best understood by you. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.
Creams and lotions play no role ma'am, either adapting shoes or surgery
Hello once again ma'am.
As you understand, hallux valgus is a deformity in the bones, which will not change with the help of creams and lotions. The best approach to treating hallux valgus is considered to be surgery. You can choose to wear adapting footwear, but this is a long process and not always as effective as surgery.
It is best to discuss your symptoms and treatment option with a orthopaedic surgeon. Please do not hesitate to write to me anytime ma'am, I am always here to help.
