A bunion is usually described as a bump on the side of the big toe causing it to lean toward the second toe rather than pointing straight ahead. The primary cause for a bunion is the genetically inherited mechanical structure of the foot.
Symptoms may include:
- Inflammation and redness
- A burning sensation
- Possible numbness
Bunions are progressive, which means they do not go away and will typically get worse over time. Our clinic focuses on early treatments that are aimed at easing the pain and discomfort of bunions. In a biomechanical assessment, our Podiatrists may recommend:
- Changes in footwear
- Changes in activity
- Foot muscle-strengthening exercises
- Orthotic devices
If you are experiencing the symptoms and pain of bunions, our Podiatrists can help ease your discomfort. Call our clinic today for an assessment.
