: :Get orthotics!
: The big toe is turning in because your foot is following a mechanically defective path. Maybe your second toe is longer than your first? Normally, your weight travels over that line, if not, then it deviates medially towar your big toe. You'll notice that the bone spur is forming at the joint (most likely). thats because the joint is being stressed and to counterbalance the stress, your body is building up a calcium deposit.
: I'm not sure where you live but you may want to see an osteopath or physical therapist who specializes in manual therapy to help correct the mal-alignment. DON'T HAVE SURGERY!!!EVER Also avoid the orthotics most DCs may try to sell you, they suck! Good luck
