Toe and Foot Exercises for Preventing Bunions 

February 23, 2017 - Amanda Jessee Iiams

The Abductor Hallucis, as the name suggests, is responsible for abducting the great toe. Great toe abduction is when the toe moves away from the 2nd toe. This is an important muscle to strengthen in people who might be prone to bunions. In the video, you can see that my right great toe abducts more easily than my left and that my left great toe has a slightly more pronounced bunion. I was just able to recruit left AH in the last 6 months and continue to work on strengthening it.
