This deviation of a thumb (the first plusnevy bone) with an inclination in inside therefore the basis, the head of this stone starts sticking out with outer side.
At healthy foot all fingers are located in parallel each other and strong tied by sinews. But at change in the copular device, the thumb starts deviating. As soon as there was a small deviation, load of foot increases and is distributed incorrectly that aggravates a problem.
