We spend a great deal of time on our feet each day. When we have feet pain or other feet problems, we need to take care of them promptly. Even minor bumps such as bunions can cause not so pleasant symptoms. If you have a bump on your toe, get it evaluated so you can get a proper diagnosis and prompt Bayside bunion treatment.
A bunion is a local bump on the base of the big toe that is a result of a bone formation. Bunions form when the large toe pushes against the adjacent toe, which forces the joint of the big toe to get bigger and to stick out. While it’s more common for them to affect the base of the big toe, they can also affect the outside of the foot at the base of the little toe. Bunions usually affect women and who wear tight-fitting shoes and high heels. Bunions are a progressive deformity that might or might not cause some or all of the following symptoms: consistent pain or intermittent pain, swelling, redness, soreness, restrictive movement of the big toe if arthritis affects the toe, corns and/or calluses that can develop where the first and second toes overlap. There are several treatment options for bunions. Some of them include: rest (keeping off your feet), a change of shoes, medications, foot supports or in certain cases, surgery. The type of treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the case and other factors. An experienced podiatrist like our expert, Gary B.
