Bunion Problems

Your foot contains a bone located at the base of the big toe. This bone connects to the one at the ball of your foot, forming a joint. While this joint normally lies in a straight line, allowing your big toe to point straight outward, sometimes the toe may begin to turn toward the rest of your toes.

When this occurs, the joint is pushed out toward the side of the foot, resulting in a bump called a bunion. The severity can range from mild to extreme. You may experience pain, which may not always persist, making it difficult to wear some types of shoes. Once our foot specialist conducts a complete examination, we will make recommendations for the type of bunion treatment that will work best for your needs. For instance, we may suggest you wear something as simple as a bunion pad or simply buy larger shoes to deal with minor cases to bunion surgery for more severe instances. We recommend you check out the resources we have available to educate yourself on the options available.
