    Terry Winkelmann helps readers "Brush Up on Bunion Basics." Winkelmann divides bunion-growths into three categories: The Classic Bunion, The Tailor's Bunion, and The Dorsal Bunion.

    What of the distinction between the "Classic Bunion" of an active career girl and that of a dancer "on pointe?" Not to mention that rarest of Dorsal Bunions - found in home-bound ladies and geriatrics who do not remove their lady shoes - the dreaded upper spur? Oh, and Terry, remember a little thing called the "Yellow Bunion?" It happens to be one of the most common foot deformities affecting loggers and heavy-machine operators today!
