A new year, a new foot. We’re talking about bunion treatment! Take a step in the right direction this year and invest in some treatment for, and prevention of, that lump on the side of your inner foot. Turns out, it’s as easy as a roomy pair of shoes, some orthotics, and maybe a surgical consultation with Kevin J. Powers, DPM.
First, avoid tight-fitting shoes and start wearing a roomier pair of shoes with low or flat heels, a wide toe box, and support for your arch. Bunion pads and a pair of custom orthotics will also take away some of your pain. However, they won’t cure a bunion. Stretching, physical therapy, and toe straightening splints may relieve pain, but are also not successful in making the problem go away. If you already have this extra bony growth on the side of your big toe joint, it may be best to discuss surgical options with Dr. Kevin Powers.
The good news is that Dr. Kevin Powers has performed hundreds of bunionectomies during his 25 years of practice as podiatrist. You can trust that a recommendation for surgery comes from expert experience and genuine concern for your foot health and quality of life. In fact, the smaller your bunion, the easier it is to correct your problem with a less-complicated surgery.
