Treatment

There are many different treatment options for bunions. Conservative treatment includes wearing proper shoe gear that has a wide toe box and avoiding narrow toed shoes such as dress shoes especially high heels that may aggravate the condition. Padding can also be placed over the bump to alleviate pain and irritation to the bump as it may rub again the shoe. Also it is important to avoid activities that irritate the condition. Icing the area after a long day on your feet can also help decrease inflammation and pain. You can also take anti-inflammatories to help decrease inflammation and pain associated with the bunion pain. Injection therapy using steroids have also shown some benefit to pain associated with bunions. Custom molded orthotic devices can also be used. These are inserts that are custom molded to your foot to correct the poor biomechanics of the foot that can alleviate pain associated with bunions but also slow the progression of bunions in their juvenile state. If all these treatment fail to alleviate the symptoms associated with bunions then there are many surgical options and procedures available that your podiatric surgeons here at Atlantic Foot and Ankle can discuss with you. Please just visit any of our five locations, Savannah, Hinesville, Statesboro, Claxton, or Bluffton and speak with our podiatrists to create a treatment plan perfectly suited to you and your needs.
