tightrope procedure

Are you one of the many Americans living with a bunion? Fifty percent of women will develop this painful condition during their lifetime. While many people blame shoes for this bone misalignment, a faulty foot structure is really at the root of the problem. However, improper footwear does play a role in its progression over time.

Stylish high-heels are worn by stars such as Beyoncé, and many young women have followed the trend. However, their feet have paid the price, and some are wondering if bunion surgery is the only way to end their daily foot pain. In fact, if started at the first sign of a problem, conservative measures can slow the development of this joint condition.

A simple change of shoes is literally the first step that you should take. Look for styles that provide ample toe space, and avoid shoes that have heels over two inches. High-heeled footwear forces excess stress on the forefoot which can greatly aggravate a bunion. Custom orthotics can help to balance the body’s weight across the feet, taking pressure off of the big toe joint. Using tape and bunion pads, our expert staff can show you how to use these tools to move your foot back into its proper position.

In some cases, more aggressive measures may be needed to address foot pain. Traditional bunion surgery is often not an option that patients want to consider. That’s why our office specializes in the tightrope procedure. Less dramatic than surgeries that require the bone to be cut, this method uses wire to place the bones in their appropriate positions.

Is bunion pain making each step miserable? Are you looking for effective treatments that don’t require a long recovery?
