Bunions are painful and unsightly. If you experience this problem you know the excruciating pain of putting on tight shoes and walking with the pressure pushing on your bones. Buying new shoes is a hassle because you can only wear soft wide shoes. Eventually, you give up on long walks and the shoes you really want. But what causes bunions and how can you get rid of them today?

Women who wear tight, pointy shoes for long periods of time are susceptible to a toe disfigurement or bunions. Bunions may be caused by years of stress on the toes, an injury, or a genetic component.

No matter the cause, bunion surgery is an option that can relieve bunion pain. At Premier Podiatry, your experienced podiatrist assesses if you are a good candidate for bunion surgery. It is worth trying more conservative methods of treatment first. Call our Clifton podiatrist office for an evaluation.

A bunion, or hallux valgus, is a painful enlargement that forms on the side of the joint of your big toe. Bunions develop as pressure on your big toe joint causes the toe to bend in inward. This creates a deformity that can make it painful to wear shoes or even walk. A severe bunion can lead to other foot problems that impact your mobility, such as:

  • Arthritis

  • Bursitis

  • Toe pain

  • Foot pain

  • Ball of foot pain

Dr. Velimir Petkov at Premier Podiatry in Passaic County, NJ evaluates how far your bunion progressed. Then he recommends the best course of treatment for your case. When your bunion is small, conservative treatments such as orthotics, extra padding for your shoes, physical therapy, or changes in footwear may give you relief or deliver improvement. If these methods don’t bring relief or your pain is debilitating, you may be a candidate for foot bunion surgery.
