Poor old Amal Clooney splashed across the press not for her glitz glamour and human rights work – but for the state if her feet – despite being clad in show stopping green Jimmy Choos (costing around £500) she was sporting a big old bunion

Once thought to be just a malaise for the old gnarled feet of a woman who – lets put it this way won’t have bothered with a pedicure it seems bunions are affecting the great and the good.

The pic led to a slurry of celebs bunions to be highlighted across the press – Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta Jones, Paris Hilton and Victoria Beckham all have shiners protruding from their glam sandals.

Bunions are caused when the foot rolls in and puts weight on the lower joint of the big toe – ill fitting shoes that offer little support exacerbate the problem too – so contrary to popular belief its not just high heels that are an.issue, even fit flops can be a problem.  They can be really painful and unsightly sometimes becoming inflamed and in some cases the joint can detach – ouch!

The options for correction include surgery special insoles and certain exercises to work.the muscles in the back of the leg which keeps the roes supple.

To relieve the swelling and pain check out this great natural remedy.
