A bunion is a bony, painful swelling that is often formed on the first joint of the big toe. Bunions can be extremely painful due to the weight of all your body resting on it each time you take a step. Everyday activities, such as walking and wearing shoes, can cause you extreme discomfort if you have a bunion.
Calluses are places on your body where the skin has been rubbed a lot. When this happens, your body makes thick, hard layers of skin in these places to protect the skin from the pressure or friction of the rubbing. The most common places to get calluses are the hands, fingers, toes, or feet, since these parts of the body are most likely to get rubbed.
Of all the joints in the body, the shoulder joint gives you some of the greatest movement. The shoulder is where the collarbone, shoulder blade, and arm bone come together. The bones are held in place by a group of four muscles and tendons (tough fibers that attach muscles to bones) called the rotator cuff, and ligaments (tough bands of tissue that connect bones to bones).
