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 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.
