Non-Invasive Bunion Correction Treatments for Northridge Residents


From a technical standpoint, a foot bunion can only be fixed with surgery. However, since many patients do not require surgery to achieve symptom relief, the early stages of the progression of deformity can be dramatically slowed when using non-invasive bunion correction treatments for Northridge residents, such as:


  • Use of topical medications: compound creams, Volgaren gel, BioFreeze 
  • Lidocaine patches
  • New techniques such as PRP or amniotic membrane injections
  • Comfortable shoes with a wide and soft toe box
  • Custom orthotics
  • Silicone gel sleeves, toe spacers, moleskin pads
  • Cortisone or steroid injections used very sparingly
  • Ice packs
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory over-the-counter drugs 
  • Low impact stretching exercises and range of motion maneuvers
  • Night splints
  • Activity modification


Our doctors can evaluate your specific situation and work with you to help reduce the comfort by trying the use of non-invasive bunion correction techniques.
