My Second Toe is Being Pushed up by My Big Toe! What do I do?

Often, patients come in with problems to their second toe. One of the big causes is that they have a bunion, which is a condition where they develop a bump on the inner foot and the big toe shifts over. The big toe can bump into the second toe or even push it upward and out of position. Simple solutions that might help this include padding and shoes that have soft material or a lot of room for the toes. Some patients require surgery for this condition, but the surgery often would include reduction of the bunion deformity.
