Santa Monica Non-Invasive Bunion Correction Treatments

 

According to our Board Certified Podiatric Foot Surgeons, any bunion can be fixed.

 

There are a number of non-invasive, non-surgical bunion correction treatments for Santa Monica patients that can help slow down or even stop the growth of a bunion and damage to the big toe joint.

 

University Foot and Ankle Institute, Santa Monica urges patients to try non-surgical bunion treatments whenever possible.

 

Surgery, no matter how minor, is still surgery, and should be avoided whenever possible. This also includes foot surgery.

 

There are a number of non-invasive care options at our Santa Monica Bunion Clinic, including:

  • Appropriate shoes (with a wider toe box) and custom orthotics (shoe inserts) to relieve pressure on the foot deformity.

  • Use of pads to protect from shoe pressure
  • Medications: over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medications (always take on a full stomach)

  • New techniques such as PRP or amniotic membrane injections
  • Bunion exercises and stretches to help realign the first metatarsal & big toe
  • Splints
  • Activity modification


We can also provide information relating to the good results being achieved from our cutting-edge bunion treatments with no actual cutting, such as Botulin Toxin,which can greatly reduce your foot pain.

Which Bunion Treatment Option is Best for Me?

Our consistent message for patients in the Santa Monica area is that there is no such thing as “one procedure fits all”.

 

Providing leading-edge care from start to finish, we always evaluate each bunion patient individually.

This is a critical part of establishing a unique bunion treatment plan for our patients in Santa Monica and throughout Los Angeles which do not always included bunion surgery. After your examination and xrays, our orthopaedic surgeons and podiatrists may have non-invasive techniques that may relive your bunion pain and eliminate or delay the need for a bunionectomy.

 

Non-Invasive Bunion Treatments

  • 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
