Juvenile Bunions

Juvenile Bunions

Juvenile bunions, involve the development of a bony bump at the base of the big toe. While juvenile bunions may cause concern for parents, specialised care and early intervention can effectively manage the condition and promote healthy foot development. At Children’s Podiatry Clinics, our experienced team is dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and supporting children with juvenile bunions.

Understanding Juvenile Bunions:

A juvenile bunion is a bony bump that forms at the joint where the big toe meets the foot. This condition can cause the big toe to point towards the other toes, leading to discomfort and potential changes in foot structure.

Causes of Juvenile Bunions:

The exact cause of juvenile bunions is not always clear, but it can be related to both genetic and environmental factors. Certain foot mechanics and shoe choices may contribute to the development of bunions.
