Treating Bunions in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Bunions are an unnatural, abnormal bony bump that forms on the base of the big toe joint. This often causes the big toe to deviate or turn towards the other toes. Over time the misalignment of the toes causes pressure or further crowding of the other toes which in turn causes pain and discomfort. 9 out of 10 bunions occur in women and more than half of the women in America have bunions due to wearing tight, narrow shoes and high heels. Though this isn’t the only cause some may occur due to inherited foot types, such as feet that pronate.

Symptoms

The signs of a bunion can be pain, a bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe, and restricted movement of the big toe. The area may become red or swollen after wearing an irritating pair of shoes.

Treatment

Conservative treatments include: changing shoe types to allow for a more comfortable wide fit, padding and taping of the area, custom orthotics, shoe inserts or medications and injections. Surgery to correct the bunion deformity is known as a bunionectomy.
