How to Minimize Your Child’s Bunion Risks

Minimize Your Child's Bunion Risks - dallas txJuvenile bunions cause pain, impairs foot function, and potentially leads to arthritis. As leading bunion experts—here are tips for minimizing your child’s bunion risks. Whereas these deformities are structural in nature and cannot be completely prevented, it is still possible to slow their progression, manage the pain, and even correct the issue by:

  • Using custom orthotics. There is a correlation between overpronation and the worsening of a bunion. The reason behind this is that this pronation abnormality places excessive pressure on the inside edge of the foot, especially in the area where bunions develop. Custom orthotics—like the kinds we prepare at our offices—will help to correct any pronation issues.
  • Wearing appropriate footwear. Shoes that do not fit properly, especially pairs that are too tight, can exacerbate this condition. Make sure that your child has footwear that is roomy in the front. If he or she cannot wiggle his or her toes, then find a different pair.
  • Surgery. We always do our best to use conservative, nonsurgical treatment methods for foot and ankle conditions, but sometimes surgery becomes a necessary option. To prevent the issue from causing painful limitation of activity, the alignment of the bones and connective tissue may need to be corrected.

Here at Dallas Podiatry Works, there is nothing better than knowing we were able to help a child affected by a painful foot condition like juvenile bunions.

The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.

I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.

Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.

I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
