Bunion Treatment in Lakewood, CA
5-Star-Rated Care for Your Relief
Bunions are painful bumps that form on the joint of the big toe. They are generally caused by the inherent structure of your toe joint, wearing shoes that are too tight, and wearing high heels. Luckily, this condition is common and somewhat easy to treat, so if you’re looking for expert care to get relief from bunions, our top-rated doctor for bunion treatment in Lakewood, CA, is here to help!
Aside from the obvious bony bump on your joints, your symptoms may include pain in your toe joint and redness in the affected area. You may also experience other symptoms related to bunions:
- Restricted movement and stiffness in your big toe
- Callus or corn between your big toe and the adjacent toe
- Swelling around your big toe
Depending on your specific case, your treatment options will vary. However, even in less severe cases, bunions can be extremely painful. Some of the recommended treatments for bunions include:
- Wearing well-fitting shoes with a wide toe box
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen
- Icing the bunion
- Resting and elevating the foot
- Cortisone injections
- Custom orthotics
- Devices such as a bunion splint
- If necessary, surgical treatment to remove the affected tissue
