Only Women Get Bunions
While women may get MORE bunions than men, the fact is about 13% of bunion sufferers are men. Women tend to suffer from bunions more often due to shoes and the fact they are often pointy, causing unnecessary pressure on the toes. We recommend wearing more comfortable shoes that prevent bunion formation in the first place.
Bunions Are Genetic
While genetics can certainly play a role in the shape and deformities of your feet, there is a lot more involved in bunion formation than just your family tree. Certain genetics may cause deformities or certain shaped feet, however, research has shown that footwear and activities play a larger role in the development of bunions.
Bunion Surgery Is Necessary
Bunion surgery should always be a last resort option in our opinion. There are numerous treatment options that can relieve the discomfort and symptoms caused by bunions, allowing patients to live a more pleasant life. Bunion surgery can result in complications and even be ineffective (see our next myth).
Bunions Don’t Recur Following Surgery
Many patients believe that once they opt for bunion surgery, bunion treatment will no longer be necessary. Unfortunately, without lifestyle changes, bunions are likely to return. We recommend exhausting natural bunion treatment options before going under the knife.
