Bunion Pain?

Just a bump on the side of the big toe? Not really!

The visible bump actually reflects changes in the bony framework of the front part of the foot. The big toe leans toward the second toe, rather than pointing straight ahead. This throws the bones out of alignment -producing the bunion's bump.

What is a Bunion?

Bunions are a progressive disorder. They begin with a leaning of the big toe, gradually changing the angle of the bones over the years and slowly producing the characteristic bump, which becomes increasingly prominent and painful. Symptoms usually appear at later stages, although some people never have symptoms.

We offer Nonsurgical Treatment Options:

If Nonsurgical Treatments Fail to Relieve Bunion Pain and when the pain interferes with daily activities, it is time to discuss surgical options with our doctors here at Optima Foot and Ankle. Together we can decide if surgery is best for you.
