Are you tired of living with that painful bunion? You have come to the right place. Bunions are due primarily to genetic factors, but can become painful over time due to trauma, ill-fitting shoes and poor foot structure. What happens, is that the bone connected to the big toe starts to grow outward pushing the big toe sideways into the other toes which can also lead to painful hammertoes, corns and calluses.

Bunions can be left untreated, but when they become painful we will first treat them conservatively with padding, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy, injection therapy, wider shoes and custom orthotics. I usually find that these conservative treatments can reduce the progression of the bunion. If symptoms persist, surgery may be an option.
