But non-contact sports are capable of producing overuse conditions like tennis elbow and runner’s knee.

Bunion – Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and Ongoing care

Bunion is commonly known as a bunion, a hallux valgus deformity consists of a lateral deviation of the great toe (hallux) with medial deviation of the first metatarsal. There is often lateral rotation of the toe such that the nail faces medially (eversion) (1).
Pressure at the head of the first metatarsal forces it to move medially. The hallux is forced laterally and a misalignment between the first metatarsal and the hallux develops. This results in a medial prominence of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint and a potentially painful and/or debilitating deformity.
