Relief from Bunions: Expert Care at Our Clinic

Bunions, medically known as hallux valgus, are a common foot condition characterized by a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. This condition can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty wearing shoes comfortably. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating bunions, offering comprehensive care to help our patients find relief and regain comfort in their feet.

Understanding Bunions

Bunions develop when the big toe pushes against the adjacent toe, forcing the joint at the base of the big toe to enlarge and protrude outward. Common causes of bunions include:

Genetics: Some individuals may inherit a predisposition to developing bunions.

Footwear: Wearing tight or narrow shoes, especially those with pointed toes or high heels, can exacerbate bunion formation.

Foot structure: Certain foot shapes or structural abnormalities, such as flat feet or high arches, may increase the risk of developing bunions.

Arthritis: Inflammatory joint conditions such as arthritis can contribute to the development of bunions.

Symptoms of Bunions

The symptoms of bunions may include:

A visible bump on the joint at the base of the big toe

Pain or tenderness around the affected joint

Swelling, redness, or inflammation at the site of the bunion

Difficulty wearing shoes, particularly those with a narrow toe box

Corns or calluses developing on or around the bunion

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options for bunions, tailored to each patient’s specific needs and the severity of their condition. Treatment may include:

Footwear modifications: Wearing shoes with a wide toe box and low heels can help alleviate pressure on the bunion and provide room for the toes to move freely.

Orthotic devices: Custom orthotic inserts or pads may be prescribed to help support the arch of the foot and relieve pressure on the bunion.

Toe exercises: Performing stretching and strengthening exercises for the toes and foot muscles can help improve flexibility and reduce discomfort.

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be recommended to reduce pain and inflammation associated with bunions.

Surgical intervention: In severe cases of bunions that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical correction may be necessary to realign the bones and alleviate pain.
