A bunion is a deformity that appears on the outside of the foot. Most commonly this is found on the joint of the big toe and the joint of the pinky toe. As bunions get worse, they will cause pain and swelling when wearing shoes.
Depending on your level of pain, treatment will vary. For cases with no pain, purchasing a shoe with a wide toe box will prevent the bunion from developing further. If you experience pain, or are finding it hard to find shoes that fit, you may need to try new methods.
Caring for painful bunions may require custom orthotics or surgery. It is always better to receive care in the early stages of a bunion. As a bunion gets bigger, treatment gets harder and more intensive.
If you have a bunion, and are starting to develop pain or have been suffering from pain, schedule an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas and stop your suffering. We have three convenient locations in Houston, Sugar Land, and Missouri City.
