BunionsMany women adore their high-heels, but wearing these high fashion shoes could be hazardous to your health.  Knowing when to choose comfort over fashion, you can potentially reduce the amount of pain your feet will suffer from painful bunions and other foot conditions. 
 
Our office is available to help you prevent the development of a bunion.  When it comes to bunions, let’s take a closer look at some valuable information for bunion prevention.  

Prevention is Key 

When it comes to bunions, it is important to give your feet a break from high-heeled shoes.  If a bunion begins to form, soaking feet in warm water can provide temporary relief in the early stages.  
 
To minimize your chances of developing a bunion, do not force your foot into a shoe that doesn’t fit.  Improper fitting shoes can aggravate bunions and foot pain.  When it comes to your shoes, choose ones that conform to the shape of your foot.  
 
Custom orthotics at your podiatrist’s office are also available to slow the development of the deformity.  Orthotics can also relieve pain in your feet, which makes it important to visit your podiatrist when complications arise. 

What if I Already Have a Bunion? 

According to your podiatrist, if you are a patient with a bunion, it is important to wear shoes that have enough room as to reduce pressure on the deformity.  When a bunion progresses to the point where walking becomes difficult and conservative treatments are not effective, you may need surgery.  
 
A consultation with your podiatrist will be needed to further diagnose and develop a proper treatment plan. Don’t wait for a bunion to form, talk to your podiatrist about steps you can take to protect your feet from a painful bunion bump.
