bunion levels

Bunions are a common foot condition that can range in severity from mild to severe. The severity of a bunion is often determined by the angle of the big toe in relation to the first metatarsal bone (the bone that connects to the big toe). This is called the "hallux valgus angle" (HVA).

There are several levels of bunion severity, including:

  1. Mild bunion: The HVA is between 10-20 degrees, and there is minimal pain or discomfort.

  2. Moderate bunion: The HVA is between 20-40 degrees, and there is moderate pain and discomfort.

  3. Severe bunion: The HVA is greater than 40 degrees, and there is severe pain and difficulty walking.

It's important to note that, treatment will vary depending on the severity of the bunion and individual needs. Mild to moderate bunions can often be managed with conservative treatment such as wearing comfortable shoes, using orthotics, and physical therapy. Severe bunions may require surgery to correct the deformity. It's recommended to consult a doctor or podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
