How To Treat A Bunion Explained by Houston Podiatrist

We often have patients come to us with a bump at the base of their big toe that is very painful when wearing shoes. This is probably a bunion. A bunion is caused by a bone in the foot that shifts. There are some bunion cases that require surgery. However, if we catch it early enough, there are measures we can take to reduce the pain, prevent it from getting worse and hopefully avoid surgery altogether. If you notice a bump on your foot, you need to call a podiatrist right away to reduce the chances of needing surgery. The sooner you come see us, the sooner we can stop the movement of the bones and reduce your pain. Call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
