bunion knee pain
Bunions are a common foot condition that affects the big toe joint, and typically cause pain and discomfort in the affected area. It is not common for bunions to cause knee pain.
However, the pain from a bunion can radiate to other parts of the body, such as the knee, if the bunion is severe enough to cause a person to alter their gait (the way they walk) to avoid the pain. The altered gait can put extra stress on the knee joint, leading to knee pain.
If you are experiencing knee pain in addition to bunion pain, it is important to see a doctor or podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. They will be able to determine if the knee pain is related to the bunion and recommend appropriate treatment options.
It is also important to rule out other conditions that can cause knee pain, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other types of joint problems.
