  • Say Goodbye to Foot Pain With Customized Bunion Treatments

If you’ve ever had to deal with bunions, you know how difficult and painful they can be. At To Healthy Feet Podiatry, we leverage our medical technology and utilize our experienced team of foot specialists to create customized and successful treatment plans, including bunion surgery, to alleviate any discomfort you are suffering from.

A bunion can begin to appear quite subtly, with only a mild bump and no symptoms. However, this condition is progressive, and without treatment, it will only get worse. As the joint deviates further, the affected toe may begin to overlap the other toes or become uncomfortable in footwear. This can lead to a number of painful symptoms, such as:

  • Swelling around the joint
  • Soreness, pain or numbness
  • Restricted toe movement
  • Pain when moving the affected toe
  • Corns or calluses
  • Bump at the joint of the affected toe

When Should I Seek Treatment For My Bunions?

Typically patients search for help when their bunion becomes painful or uncomfortable. You must bear in mind that bunions will get worse over time and so the earlier you can treat them, the longer you can prevent bunion surgery.

Some questions to ask yourself before seeking treatment include:

  • Is your bunion causing you pain?
  • Are your activities restricted due to your condition?
  • Does your bunion affect your footwear choice?
  • Is the bunion affecting other toes on your feet?

Remember: As a bunion progresses, it can become extremely painful and/or debilitating. It can affect your daily activities and quality of life quite severely, so it’s important to address the condition as soon as you can.

What are The Treatment Options For Bunions?

There are several different conservative treatment options available to relieve the symptoms of bunions and prevent the condition from progressing. However, in the long term, surgery is the only option to completely resolve your bunions.

Conservative Treatment Options

At our New York City foot clinic, our team of foot doctors are able to recommend a wide range of conservative treatment options to alleviate any bunion associated pain you may have. These include:

  • Changing to wider shoes and padding to protect the area from rubbing
  • Maintaining a normal and consistent weight
  • Prescribing NSAIDs for pain
  • Joint injections to temporarily alleviate discomfort and pain in the area
  • Physical therapy such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and massage

However, if conservative methods of treatment fail to control the pain associated with bunions, then surgery may be necessary to restore your bone to the proper alignment.

Surgical Treatment For Bunions

Your foot doctor may recommend a surgical operation to alleviate the pain associated with your bunion. If this is the case, he/she will also explain the different surgical options and the specific procedure they would recommend in your case.

Bunion surgery can provide many benefits, including:

  • Alleviation of pain. Bunion surgery will straighten out your toe and reduce the width of your foot by re-aligning the metatarsal bone into a straight position.
  • Better footwear fitting. You’ll enjoy better fitting shoes with no more bunion bump to cause pain or discomfort.
  • Improved aesthetics. A surgery will result in a cosmetically straight toe. It will also ensure that the joint works in perfect alignment to aid better function.
