Q
Is my daughter (or son) destined to inherit my bunions.

A

Bunions really come from an abnormality of the way your foot functions, aka your biomechanics.  So the question really is what foot type do you have that led to your bunion forming and does your child (son or daughter) has the same foot type. If your child does, treating them early may prevent them from ever forming a bunion.   If you are worried, call our office for a full evaluation and xrays to determine your foot type and if orthotics are right for your child.
