what is a bunion

Doctors call that bump hallux valgus, but you might know it as a bunion.

Bunions form when the bone or tissue at the joint at the bottom of the big toe moves out of place.

Years of abnormal motion and pressure on the joint forces the big toe to bend toward the others, which causes an often-painful lump on the joint.

Bunion Treatment

Treatment options vary depending on the severity of your bunion and the amount of pain it causes.

Conservative treatment:

Custom Orthotics - Padded shoe Orthotics can help distribute pressure evenly when you move your feet, reducing your symptoms and preventing your bunion from getting worse.

- Nonsurgical treatments that may relieve the pain and pressure of a bunion include:

- Changing shoes. Wear roomy, comfortable shoes that provide plenty of space for your toes.

-Padding and taping or splinting. Use over-the-counter, nonmedicated bunion pads. Also, your doctor can help you tape your foot in a normal position. This can reduce stress on the bunion and alleviate your pain.

Medications. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen sodium (Aleve) can help you control the pain of a bunion. Cortisone injections also might help.


Bunion Surgical options

If conservative treatment doesn't provide relief from your symptoms, you might need surgery. However, surgery isn't recommended unless a bunion causes you frequent pain or interferes with your daily activities.

There are numerous surgical procedures for bunions, and no one technique is best for every problem.

Surgical procedures for bunions might involve:

Removing the swollen tissue from around your big toe joint

Straightening your big toe by removing part of the bone

Realigning the long bone between the back part of your foot and your big toe, to straighten out the abnormal angle in your big toe joint.

Joining the bones of your affected joint permanently.

It's possible that you'll be able to walk on your foot immediately after a bunion procedure. However, full recovery can take weeks to months.

To prevent a recurrence, you'll need to wear proper shoes after recovery. For most people

it is unrealistic to expect to wear narrower shoes after surgery.
