BUNION PAIN TREATMENT
& RELIEF

Bunion pain is real problem for thousands of people in the Gold Coast and Around Australia. Bunions can affect the shoes we wear and the activities we do. Bunion pain can be debilitating and prevent you from every day activities or from keeping an active lifestyle.

But what can be done about fixing bunions? What is the most effective bunion treatment?

How to Treat Bunions

In order to treat bunions and bunion pain we first need to know the cause of the bunion.

Podiatrist for bunions on the Gold Coast

Bunions are usually the result of a secondary subluxation or joint misalignment. When other joints in the foot are out of alignment they prevent the big toe from moving up and down correctly. This forces the toe sideways into the smaller toes. The bunion lump develops and gets bigger the more the big toe moves sideways.

As the bunion worsens it eventually pushes into the smaller toes which can result in deformity of these toes. This can result in hammer toes, claw toes and mallet toes. ​​

Bunions can start in young children or in adulthood. The sooner we start bunion treatment the better the chance you have of avoiding bunion surgery.

As we get older the bunion becomes less flexible and more painful. By starting the bunion treatment as early as possible we can prevent the bunion from getting bigger and more painful.

HOW TO AVOID BUNION SURGERY​

HAVE YOU BEEN TOLD YOU NEED BUNION SURGERY?​

DO YOU WANT AN ALTERNATIVE TO BUNION SURGERY? ​

Bunions can be uncomfortable and painful. They can prevent us wearing certain shoes and they can prevent certain activities. They can make us self-conscious about showing our feet in public.

If you’re reading this, you might have been told that the only way to remove bunions is with bunion surgery.

You might have already tried a number of different podiatry treatments, like orthotics, but you still have bunion pain and the bunions aren’t improving, or worse still, your bunions may even be getting bigger.

​In order to avoid bunion surgery, first you need to know what caused the bunion to develop.

When your feet are misaligned this can cause too much pressure into the big toe joint. When the big toe cant go up and down correctly it is forced to go sideways which results in the bunion lump.

By realigning the joints in the feet the big toe can function better and the pain can recede.

If your goal is to find an alternative to bunion surgery then contact us today to see if our podiatry treatment is right for you.

HOW TO STOP PAIN AFTER BUNION SURGERY

HAD BUNION SURGERY BUT STILL HAVE PAIN?

Although bunion surgery is sometimes a complete success, unfortunately we still see a number of clients where their bunion surgery has not been successful. These clients still experience bunion pain, and often they attempt to compensate for this which causes other areas to become painful.

When the joints in the feet are misaligned this leads to bunion development, which can lead to surgery for fusing the big toe or removing the bunion.

However, if the underlying cause is not addressed, then the bony lump can grow back after it has been removed.

Or worse still, other areas in the body can start to hurt. If the big toe is fused it can’t function the way it is meant to. We often alter the way we walk to compensate or minimise the pain, but this misalignment can then result in ankle pain, knee pain or hip pain.

If you still have bunion pain after bunion surgery, we suggest you make an appointment today with one of our experienced practitioners. They are specifically trained to treat the underlying cause of the bunion pain to prevent you needing more bunion surgery.
