All About Bunionette & Bunionette Treatment
Do you have a lump or growth coming out of the side of your foot? Thought bunions only affected the big toe? Bunionettes are a much less common occurrence than regular bunions that actually develop on the outside of the pinky (small) toe. Bunionettes are also typically referred to as “tailor’s bunions” due to the fact that tailors often develop bunionettes from sitting on hard surfaces for long periods of time. When sitting in specific positions or wearing specific footwear (especially high heels), it can put excessive pressure on the area, resulting in the formation of a bunion.
What Causes Tailor’s Bunions?
When it comes to the formation of tailor’s bunions, there can be both natural and environmental causes. Some patients may be born with congenital problems that lead to bunionette formation later in life. Other patients may suffer from bunionettes simply due to the footwear they choose to wear and other lifestyle choices that may be excessive pressure on the area.
