Plano, TX consistently ranks as a top place to live, and one reason is the city’s effort to make sure the history and culture is protected. To conserve and protect your foot health, you benefit when you understand what makes bunions worse so you can avoid those things.

Foot conservation is importantIf you’d like to volunteer and make a difference in the community, the Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation is hosting a fun, free event (“Tombstone Mysteries: Solve ‘Em & Save ‘Em”) on May 9 to restore two of the city’s historic cemeteries. You can find more details at their website. We just hope that you do not have to pass this up on account of the toe pain that can accompany a bunion.

Understanding what contributes to bunions is instrumental in caring for and conserving your body. The pain caused by a bunion is bad enough, but there are ways you might inadvertently be contributing to the condition. We want your feet to be at their best, so be sure to watch out for:

  • Wearing shoes that are too tight. Ill-fitting footwear can . Always opt for shoes that are comfortable and do not squash your toes together.
  • Excessively pronating. When you walk, your feet undergo a natural inwards rolling motion called pronation. When done excessively—overpronation—you put yourself at greater risk for a bunion, or aggravate an existing one. We can help by providing orthotics to improve pronation issues.
  • Excessive high-impact activities. Running and other high-impact exercises can be a great way to stay in shape, but they also can worsen or irritate a bunion. Instead of solely relying on these activities, mix low-impact exercises into your workouts to decrease your risk of injury and enhance your overall fitness.
     

Remember that it’s one thing to understand what makes bunions worse, but you also need to do something about the condition. Give your body the proper conservation it deserves and have our professionals at Dallas Podiatry Works—including Dr. Joel Brook, who happens to be Dallas’ premier bunion specialist—provide the treatment you need.
