Know Your Bunion Treatment Options

Know Your Bunion Treatment OptionsOne of the big advantages of living in an urban community like the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the ability to have many options for just about everything. We are fortunate to have an abundance of options for eating, working out, and having fun. You could exercise at Equinox Fitness, grab a bite at Montlake Cut, and then head to Shenaniganz for a night out. Or you could go to one of the many Cross-Fit Gyms, enjoy some crispy lamb meatballs at Sprezza, and cap your night at Masque.

We could go on, but you get the picture. In a similar manner, we offer many options for bunion treatment here at Dallas Podiatry Works. No matter which ones we use, the goal is always the same – to provide the relief you need!

There are two general paths we can pursue for treating bunions – conservative and surgical. Nonsurgical treatment is the preferred course we will take, especially for juvenile bunions. When children develop this common toe deformity, surgery is not advised until after bones have reached physical maturity. With this in mind, we will rely on conservative treatment options like:

  • Shoe modifications. Bunion patients need to avoid excessively tight shoes, especially ones with high heels that place extra pressure on the front of the foot.
  • Activity modifications. We may recommend avoiding certain physical activities that stress the joint.
  • Pads, taping, and splinting. We may need to use a splint or tape the wayward joint into a more normal position. This will relieve stress on the bunion. Padding can also be quite beneficial.
  • Medication and ice. These conservative options can be effective at relieving bunion pain and swelling.

Our goal at Dallas Podiatry Works is to treat conditions with conservative care methods whenever possible, but there are times when surgical procedures are necessary. We may need to remove swollen tissue, realign or remove part of a bone, or even fuse the joint permanently. The good news is that our experienced staff is highly skilled in bunion surgery.

For more information on bunion treatment options, or any other foot and ankle condition causing you pain or difficulty, call us toll-free at 972.566.7474. In addition to having your questions answered, we can help you schedule an appointment with either our Plano or Dallas, TX offices. You can also request a visit at either location online.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"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 care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
