Avoid Foot Surgery?

Here is a tried and true solution to avoid foot surgery

We are always looking for the easiest and least invasive methods for treating foot conditions. We pride ourselves on being able to help someone avoid surgery.

Surgery is a common treatment for a painful bunion, but not the only one. Some people aren’t in the position to take the time off needed to heal from bunion surgery.

Some of the methods we’ve used to help our patients avoid surgery are new and innovative, and some are old and long-reliable.

One of the most reliable traditional treatments for alleviating pain from a bunion is the use of custom orthotics.

Custom orthotics are made from a mold of your feet. They are effective at reducing or stopping the pain from a bunion because they prevent the foot from turning inward. By stabilizing the foot, there’s less irritation on the bunion as it no longer rubs against the shoe.

We’ve had teenagers and adults walk in with consistent pain from a bunion, and walk out of our office pain-free thanks to custom orthotics.

Not only can orthotics stop bunion pain; they can slow down how fast a bunion grows. Many bunions get bigger with time unless something changes about how the foot moves.

If you are experiencing pain from a bunion and would like to avoid surgery, orthotics are an easy and painless solution.

Let us know how we can help keep your feet healthy.
