Foot problems can pose issues on a daily basis, especially since most of us rely on our feet to get us from place to place, whether we are walking long distances or simply getting across our own homes to go about our day. Foot problems, especially those that cause pain, can make daily life a chore and a difficult one at that. One common cause for foot pain and discomfort is bunions, and for Bayside bunion treatment, our podiatrist Gary B. Feldman, DPM is here to help.
Bunions are a common foot deformity that can vary in size as well as severity. Bunions can happen, or be caused by, many things. There are also certain factors that can contribute to the formation of bunions as well, including the types of shoes you regularly wear, how often your feet experience stress, strain and friction, and even simple genetics. Regardless of the cause of your bunion, having a bunion can be painful. A bunion forms when friction and pressure cause the joint belonging to the big to drift outward. This can widen the foot in shape and it can also change the trajectory of the big toe itself, causing it to point inward and even overlap or jut into the second toe. This can be quite painful, and the widening of the foot can make wearing closed shoes very painful as well as quite difficult. Here with Gary B. Feldman, DPM, you can have your bunions assessed. Depending on the severity of the situation, your treatment may vary. In some cases, bunions can be treated by simply changing your shoes and wearing something more sensible with lots of support, if the bunion is mild. For more advanced cases, surgery may be needed to correct the joint and realign it all together. When it comes to Bayside bunion treatment, it all depends, and Dr. Feldman us here to find the perfect solution for you.
