Very Pregnant Amal Clooney Still Has Bunions

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Designer shoes don't look so great with bunions poking throughJust when you thought Amal Clooney had the perfect life—high powered job, fairy tale wedding, movie star husband (George Clooney, for those who are unaware) and twins on the way any minute—pictures of her feet emerge that completely shatter that image. If you look at the picture to the right, you can clearly see her bunion popping out of those fashionable flats.

You see, guys, even Amal Clooney isn’t immune to that peskiest of foot problems: bunions. A bunion is an abnormal, bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. Your big toe joint becomes enlarged, forcing the toe to crowd against your other toes. This puts pressure on your big toe joint, pushing it outward beyond the normal profile of your foot, and resulting in pain.

While genetics help determine whether or not you will develop a bunion, wearing the type of stilettos that Amal tends to favor certainly can contribute to the problem. When you wear high heels, the pressure of your body weight shifts forward, putting more weight on the toes and causing bones to shift.
If you want to avoid the kind of problem that Amal Clooney is experiencing—be smart. Choose low-heeled, supportive foot-wear and schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Schneider at the first sign of any foot problem.
