Non-Invasive bunion correction treatments for Los Angeles residents


If you are experiencing the mild onset of discomfort from one of the most common foot problems affecting up to 33% of adults, the progression during its early stages can often be dramatically slowed with non-invasive bunion correction techniques.


While it never goes away on its own, there are non-surgical bunion correction techniques that may help relieve painful symptoms. You may wish to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors who are great supporters of trying non-surgical bunion correction treatments whenever possible for relief


Non surgical bunion treatments include:


  • Comfortable shoes and custom orthotics
  • Exercise, stretching and range of motion maneuvers
  • Night splints
  • Modifying activities
  • Steroid or cortisone injections used very sparingly
  • Topical meds: compound creams, BioFreeze, Voltaren gel, Lidocaine patches
  • New techniques: PRP or amniotic membrane injections
  • Ice Packs
  • Over-the-counter meds such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

Which Bunion Treatment Option is Best for Me?


As a nationally recognized bunion surgery center of excellence, we are continuously conducting studies to further the advancement of state-of-the-art technologies.


Since there is no “one size fits all” bunion remedy, we treat each of our Los Angeles patients individually, taking into account their lifestyle, physical challenges of personal and professional life, and their physical condition to establish a plan that may include options such as:


  • Topical medications
  • Use of new techniques such as PRP or amniotic membrane injections
  • Ice packs and over-the-counter medications to relieve pain and reduce swelling
  • Stretching exercises and range of motion maneuvers to relive discomfort
  • Bunion surgery in cases of unsuccessful less invasive treatment options
