Don’t Operate Your Own Personal Treatment Center, Part Two

Good day, Doctor Paul Betschart here, ready to talk to my friends in Danbury again today about some of the mistakes that people make by trying to treat themselves. Specifically, we are focusing on the condition known as bunions, which affects many people today. Many times people try to treat their bunions by using an ice pack. While this may help to relieve some of the swelling that develops from the protruded bone, it will not target the root cause of the issue that is causing the swelling in the first place. Misalignment of the entire big toe joint is the root cause of the problem.

If you are dealing with a bunion, get it evaluated right away. I’d love for you to visit me, here at my office in Danbury. We have the most advanced treatments available, including the revolutionary Lapiplasty 3 dimensional bunion correction. Come on in for a consultation to see if it is right for you Call 844 375 7622 or visit www.danburypodiatrist.com
