This makes a bump and causes the bones of the foot to be misaligned.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Many people believe that bunions are the result of wearing improperly fitting shoes or high heels. Unfortunately, bunions are an affliction that runs in families.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>If mom or dad were affected, it’s more likely that you will as well. Usually, there will be bunions on both feet.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>As years go by, the symptoms and affects of the bunion get worse. Some of the most common symptoms are:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>People with bunions may be concerned about the changing appearance of their feet, and it is usually the pain caused by the condition that leads them to consult their doctor. Our doctor will evaluate any symptoms experienced and examine the affected foot for joint enlargement, tissue swelling and/or tenderness.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>They will also assess any risk factors for the condition and will ask about family history. An x-ray of the foot is usually recommended so that the alignment of big toe joint can be assessed. This would also allow any other conditions that may be affecting the joint, such as arthritis, to be seen.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The diagnosis and treatment of the bunion(s) should be performed by a podiatrist. If not taken care of early enough, it is less and less likely that non surgical options will be available.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>When you arrive at <em><strong>“<span class__equalto____cout__tj-companyname__cout__>__squarer__companyname__squarel__</span>“</strong></em>, Your doctor will thoroughly examine the affected area of your feet. X-rays will be taken. The X-ray will show the position or the metatarsal bone and any other abnormalities in the area.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The examination and the X-rays provide a detailed understanding of what treatment is necessary to restore your feet to good health.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>A range of treatments is available for bunions, including:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Painkillers</p>
<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>Modifying footwear</li>
<li>Orthotics, such as insoles, bunion pads and toe spacers</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>There are many options for providing relief for bunions. Over the counter options include things like gel bunion sleeves that reduce the pressure, pads and wide shoes or medications. If these remedies do not reduce or remove the pain, it may be necessary to perform a “bunionectomy” to remove the bunion.</strong></em></p>

<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The joint where your big toe joins your foot becomes swollen, which throws the foot bones out of alignment and produces the characteristic bump at the joint’s base.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Bunions tend to come in pairs. In other words, if you have a bunion on your left foot, you’ll probably also have one on your right foot.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>A common myth about bunions is that they’re caused by wearing high heels or other shoes that exert pressure on the outside of your big toe. While ill-fitting shoes can certainly make bunions worse, bunions are mostly hereditary. If your parents have bunions, you stand a good chance of having them, too.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Symptoms of bunions tend to increase over time as the condition worsens. Typical symptoms include:</strong></em></p>

<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>Deformity of the big toe joint</li>
<li>Growth of a bony lump (exostosis) at the side of the big toe joint</li>
<li>Pain, redness and tissue swelling (bursitis) over the big toe joint, with thickening of overlying skin</li>
<li>Pain when walking (particularly during the __cout__push off__cout__ phase)</li>
<li>Overlapping of the big toe above or below the second toe in severe cases.</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>People with bunions may be concerned about the changing appearance of their feet, but it is usually the pain caused by the condition that leads them to consult their doctor.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>If pain persists, podiatric medical attention should be sought. Bunions tend to get larger and more painful if left untreated, making non-surgical treatment less of an option.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our podiatrist will evaluate any symptoms experienced, and examine the affected foot for joint enlargement, tissue swelling and/or tenderness.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>When you arrive at our clinic, we’ll start with a thorough assessment of your feet, including digital X-rays of the affected area. The doctor will also assess any risk factors for the condition, and will ask about family history.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>An x-ray of the foot is usually recommended so that the alignment of the big toe joint can be assessed. This would also allow any other conditions that may be affecting the joint, such as arthritis, to be seen.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>X-rays of a classic bunion typically reveal abnormal positioning of the first metatarsal bone, and sometimes extra bone growth in that area.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Once we have a clear picture of what’s going on inside your foot, we’ll develop a treatment plan to get you back on your feet quickly.</p>

<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>

<li>Orthotics, such as insoles, bunion pads and toe spacers</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Most bunions can be treated conservatively by providing you with wider &amp; softer shoes, gel bunion sleeves to relieve the pressure, and/or medications. If these remedies don’t help, then a ‘bunionectomy’ or surgical removal of the bunion may be necessary.</p>
