CHARLOTTE BUNION SPECIALIST
Get Relief from Bunion Pain Today!
Did you know that foot and ankle pain isn’t normal? You read that right – your feet shouldn’t hurt. We know that some people think that foot or ankle pain is normal because they’ve grown accustomed to it over time, from wearing ill-fitting shoes, being on their feet a lot, or being extremely active. Does this describe you or a loved one?
If you have developed a bump protruding from the base of your big toe that is causing foot discomfort, rest assured, bunions are a common cause of foot discomfort. A bunion is a structural deformity where the underlying bones are misaligned, and is often an uncomfortable, progressive condition. Bunions bulge out from the side of your foot, and can make wearing your favorite pair of shoes difficult. In some patients, even walking or regular daily activities can become quite painful. Without correction, bunions generally get worse. Isn’t it time you find relief from bunion pain? Luckily, help is on the way with our Charlotte bunion specialist.
How Does Our Experienced Charlotte Bunion Specialist Treat This Painful Condition?
If you are experience pain from a bunion, we highly recommend coming in to see our podiatrist for an appointment. Depending on the severity of your bunion, we may recommend one or a combination of the following treatment methods:
- Resting your feet
- Custom orthotics
- Wearing shoes with a wide toe box
- Icing the affected area
- Devices such as a bunion splint
- Anti-inflammatory medication
- Cortisone injections
- Surgical treatment
Do Bunions Require Surgery?
Because there are many ways to fix a bunion, our Charlotte bunion specialist will review all options with you to determine the best course. Some bunions cause only minor problems whereas others can be painful as well as unsightly. We usually begin treatment with conservative methods such as appropriate shoes, custom orthotics, and padding to maximize your comfort. Treating bunions with corrective surgery is reserved for patients who have pain that unresponsive to conservative treatment methods, cannot comfortably wear the shoes of their choice, or for those who have deformities that are progressively worsening. Bunion surgery is performed in an outpatient setting under sedation, and works well for the vast majority of patients.
