bunion joint popping
A popping or snapping sound coming from a bunion joint can be caused by the displacement of the bones in the joint. As the bones shift out of place, they may rub against each other and create a popping or snapping noise. This can occur when walking, standing or moving the foot. This can be accompanied by pain, discomfort, and difficulty walking. If the joint popping is accompanied by pain, it's important to see a doctor or podiatrist. They may recommend treatment options such as wearing comfortable shoes, physical therapy or in severe cases surgery may be necessary.
