The forefoot can widen and cause the gig toe to move away from the foot. This is called hallux valgus or commonly also known as a bunion. The ligaments soften and cause the bones to move away from each other which makes the foot wider. Female hormones make the ligaments softer compare to men’s ligaments that are stiffer and stronger. Using Footerella Tapes in the special position holds the foot together and can reverse early stages of bunion for formation.
