In this video, Dr. Ray McClanahan, a sports podiatrist at Northwest Foot and Ankle and the inventor of Correct Toes, discusses how bunionettes are treated using conventional and natural approaches. A bunionette, also known as a tailor's bunion, is a bump or prominence on the fifth metatarsal bone, at the base of the little toe. A bunionette is not a growth of bone, as is commonly believed; it is, instead, a progressive dislocation of the 5th metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint caused by conventional footwear. This video explains why footwear causes this dislocation and discusses natural alternatives to one of the most common conventional approaches: surgery. Dive deeper into the topic of bunionettes and how to treat and prevent them in this informative video.
