How Country Foot Care doctors treat bunions
Non-surgical treatment of bunions often provides only temporary pain relief. With mild bunion deformities, wearing custom orthotics may halt the progression of the bony changes by compensating for the biomechanical imbalance that caused the bunion to form. Wearing wider shoes, using bunion pads, cortisone injections, physical therapy and taking oral anti-inflammation medications can also provide temporary pain relief.
When conservative care fails to reduce these painful symptoms, surgical intervention may be indicated to realign the bones into their proper position. As each bunion deformity is unique, recovery time from surgery will vary. At Country Foot Care, our in-house diagnostic imaging helps us quickly assess the severity of bunion deformities, and helps us create a clinical protocol that best suits your individual needs.
