The metatarsophalangeal joint is the joint that connects the foot to the toes. Injury to the connective tissues in this joint near the big toe is called turf toe. The injury is generally the result of excessive upward bending of the big toe joint. This condition can be caused from either by jamming the toe, or repetitive injury when pushing off repeatedly when running or jumping.
When the big toe pushes unevenly against the other toes, it nudges outward and creates a bony bump on the side of the foot. This is known as a bunion. Many a times it is accompanied by the swelling of the bursal sac that lies between the joints. Sometimes bunions are erroneously described as enlarges tissues but are actually a deformity of the bone.
