Juanete

Los juanetes son causados generalmente por la presión prolongada sobre los pies que comprime el dedo gordo del pie y lo empuja contra el dedo que está a su lado. Con el tiempo, esta afección comienza a hacerse dolorosa a medida que más hueso crece en la base en la que el dedo gordo se une con el pie.
