Before any treatment, it is a must that patients undergo proper assessment. If you are a parent and you have bunions, your children will most likely have them, too. Proper evaluation is important in controlling the worsening of the deformity. Bunions can be easily treated when detected early. For early bunion treatment, you should use shoes specially designed for your condition or avoid tight-fitting shoes.
There are also products you can use such as the orthotics or the shoe inserts, bunion pads, and bunion splints. Your doctor may also provide you other device that will effectively control the deformity. For the inflammation, you may take pain medications. It is also important to make sure that your foot rests well by elevating them when resting. If you want to have it totally removed, you may opt for bunion removal surgery. Mattison Podiatry Group offers a surgical and non-surgical means to remove your bunions in Boynton Beach.
