Not only are they unsightly, but they hurt. A bunion is a painful bony bump that develops on the inside of the foot at the big toe joint. Bunions are also referred to as hallux valgus. Bunions develop slowly. Pressure on the big toe joint causes the big toe to lean toward the second toe. Over time, the normal structure of the bone changes, resulting in the bunion bump. This deformity will gradually increase and may make it painful to wear shoes or walk. Anyone can get a bunion, but they are more common in women which is generally attributed to the types of shoes they wear. In most cases, bunion pain is relieved by wearing wider shoes with adequate toe room and using other simple treatments to reduce pressure on the big toe. In some cases, an enlarged MTP (metatarsophalangeal) joint may lead to bursitis, a painful condition in which the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that cushions the bone near the joint becomes inflamed. It may also lead to chronic pain and arthritis if the smooth articular cartilage that covers the joint becomes damaged from the joint not gliding smoothly. It is important to get treatment before the symptoms progress. However, if the change in footwear doesn’t improve the symptoms, bunion treatment in Spring Hill may be surgical.
A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to remove your bunion. Dr. Adamov will consider this procedure when conservative means of addressing the problem, including properly fitting, wide-toed shoes, a padded cushion against the joint, orthotics, and anti-inflammatory medication.
