Taking a closer look at common foot myths

Filed under:

Think you can't walk on a broken foot? How about trying to relieve ingrown toenail pain by cutting into your toenail? Those and other myths are being dispelled in a new report from foot experts.

Are bunions caused by those new shoes (or old ones)? Not according to foot surgeons, who blame those painful foot issues with the genetics that cause faulty foot structures in the first place.

It's interesting to see that 19 out of the 26 bones in your feet are in the toes themselves, and specialized surgeons are sometimes the only ones who can help correct foot deformities (as slight as they may be) and other issues that you may be blaming on other factors.
