What to Do for Your Child’s Bunion

Parents want to give their children the best. That’s evident throughout the year, but the holidays and gift shopping seem to highlight it well. Parents want to be able to give their children a good, enjoyable life.

What to Do for Your Child's BunionParents also realize that a lot of what makes life good and enjoyable doesn’t always come in boxes. It comes from other things, like a loving family and a healthy body. For parents whose children have foot pain, particularly from something like a pediatric bunion, helping give the gift of pain relief may be a priority this year. The good news is that you can take care of a child’s bunion at home to improve comfort and keep it from getting worse.

Conservative care usually is the best treatment option for a child’s bunion, which is something you can help with at home. The goal is to relieve pressure on the bony protrusion so it doesn’t hurt or worsen. Here are a few ways you can help your child with bunion pain:

  • Change shoes – Shoes press against the bunion and can irritate it. Make sure your child wears wide enough shoes, or have his or her shoes widened around the protrusion to minimize pressure.
  • Consider orthotics – Orthotics can offer foot support, potentially reducing some of the pressure that contributed to the problem’s development.
  • Try toe splints – Children whose feet are still growing may benefit from splints to help hold the toe in the proper position.

In extreme cases where your child continues to struggle with pain while the pediatric bunion worsens, surgery might become an option as well.

No parent wants their child to live with pain, so when your child develops a bunion, don’t wait to take care of it. The earlier you seek help, the better. Dallas’ premier bunion specialists at Dallas Podiatry Works are here to help you.

"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 all h
"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
