Treatment for Painful and Disabling Foot Conditions

Bunions are a common foot problem and can cause significant pain and discomfort. It’s important to be aware of this type of condition so you can get the appropriate treatment you need to prevent more serious problems later. Our skilled podiatrists at Curalta Foot + Ankle provide comprehensive bunion care and treatment.

What Are Bunions?

If you’ve noticed your big toe leans towards the other toes, you may have a bunion. It is a very common and typically benign condition caused by the pressure of the big toe pushing against the metatarsal bone that results in a characteristic bony lump forming at the base of the big toe. What may start as a minor irritation, bunions, can quickly make it more difficult for you to move your toes, wear shoes comfortably, or walk.

Treating Bunions in the Northeast

Bunion treatment depends on its cause, which will be identified by your podiatrist. The leading cause of this foot problem starts by wearing shoes that are too tight, but other contributors include structural aspects of the foot, like flat feet and pronated feet. In others, a foot injury may be to blame. Bunion symptoms are typically treatable with over-the-counter medication like heating pads and foot baths, but in the most severe cases, they require surgery for adequate relief.

Common solutions for bunions include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication
  • Corticosteroid injections to prevent inflammation and soothe pain
  • Custom-made orthotics
  • Padding or taping the foot to reduce bunion pressure
  • Bunionectomy surgery
