Do you suffer from painful bunions?
A bunion is a bony lump which usually forms on the big toe. Women are more likely to have bunions, thanks to narrow and restrictive footwear. Also, certain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis can increase your risk of developing a bunion.
If bunions are left untreated they will continue to grow, making the bony lump even bigger and more painful, and can seriously affect your ability to wear normal footwear.
Professional treatment of bunions
It’s essential that you have a professional look at your bunions and formulate a plan for treatment and ongoing management so that they don’t reform after you’ve had them treated – something that our experts are able to do.
Bunions are identified as a bony lump located most commonly at the base of the big toe joint, but also at the little toe joint. Redness, pain and inflammation can also be seen around the joint.
Bunions are caused by a foot deformity, specifically the big toe abducting inwards leaving bone to protrude outwards and more bone to develop on top of this. Other factors can contribute:
Genetics – joint mis-development or flat feet
Poorly fitted footwear
Most commonly, treatment aims to relieve pain, for example using orthotics (insoles), padding, splints or joint mobilisation. If the bunion is very large or painful, surgery may be opted for.
