What is a bunion?

A bunion, also known as hallux valgus, typically appears as a bony bump on the inside edge of the foot.

 

The bump occurs when the first metatarsal shifts outward so that the head of the bone protrudes on the inside of the foot near the big toe joint. When a bunion develops on the base of the little toe, it is called a tailor's bunion.

Non-Invasive bunion correction treatments for Los Angeles residents

 

While our podiatrists are nationally recognized bunion surgeons, they avoid surgery and prescribe non-surgical treatment options whenever possible. A bunion will never go away on its own but there are non-surgical bunion deformity correction techniques that may help relieve painful symptoms.

 

If you are experiencing mild foot pain from bunions, the progression during its early stages can often be dramatically slowed with non-invasive bunion correction techniques.

 

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 (sometimes misspelled bunyon or bunyion) 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 treatment plan.

 

Avoiding surgery is always a good idea and it is our goal with our patients. But when less invasive techniques are unsuccessful, bunion surgery may be recommended.

 

Call University Foot and Ankle Institute to schedule a consultation and learn more about our advanced bunion treatment technologies and commitment to providing leading-edge foot care to each patient. 877-989-9110.
