A Bunion can be a very painful condition. It not only makes the foot look different it often deforms shoes and affects how you walk.

A bunion is excess bone that has built up usually on the inside of the foot near the big toe. You can also get a bunion on the outside of the foot near the little toe. Bunions are almost always caused by genetics. It’s mostly a myth that narrow, high-heeled shoes are the cause of bunions.

The only treatment for a bunion you can do at home is wear wider shoes. Over the counter products such as a bunion pad or splint are ineffective.

The Big Toe Is No Longer Straight

A bunion can cause the big toe to start leaning towards the second toe. Unfortunately, the big toe can either under lap or overlap the second toe. More pain is usually the result.  When the big toe affects the second toe it becomes more difficult to wear certain shoes.

There are a couple of nonsurgical treatments that can help alleviate bunion symptoms. If a bunion becomes painful enough and big enough surgery is the best option.  Contrary to what you may have heard most bunions that are removed don’t ever come back. A few weeks of healing will result in a lifetime of cure.

You May Not Need Surgery

If you have a bunion and simply want to know what your options are the first step is to have an evaluation and x-rays. Unless the pain is significant enough you may be a good candidate for non-surgical options. In our practice, surgery is always the last resort.

We welcome any questions you may have about bunions. If you’d like to schedule an evaluation, simply call 248-362-3338 and one of our friendly team members will get you set up.
