Just like our two eyes are not the same, our two ears are not the same, our two feet are not the same.  The biomechanics, muscle makeup, and even the bone shapes in a person's two feet are not exactly the same, and this accounts for the difference in the severity of a bunion.  In addition, you may perform different activities with different feet or you may favor one over the other.  Just as each foot is different, the big toe joint may also be different and one may have more symptoms than the other.  If you are having pain in your big toe joint, contact our office and make an appointment to be seen by one of our doctors.
