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.

The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.

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.
