Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so let’s talk love… for your feet! When you love someone, you don’t want them to hurt, right? As a matter of fact, you want to take as much pressure off of them as possible. Well, when your foot has a nagging bunion, you want to literally keep pressure off it, and appropriate footwear can help. (Who says romance is dead?)

Valentines Day

As you get dressed up for a romantic dinner at Houston’s Da Marco, you may be squeezing your tootsies into the very culprit—tight, high-heeled stilettos—that caused the trouble in the first place. Bunions happen when your big toe bone pushes inward onto the second toe bone. This disrupts the alignment with the first metatarsal bone and creates a painful bump where that bone juts out.

The condition is often caused by those aforementioned shoes that force the toes into an unnatural position. When you want to find relief, or prevent a bump from forming in the first place, you need to choose a different type of shoe altogether. For starters, avoid any type of footwear that has a pointy toe because that’s just asking for pain that can exceed a broken heart. High heels create a lot of unnecessary pressure—like trying to get a guy to commit—on the front of your foot and will only aggravate the bony protrusion, so stay away from them as well.

Footwear that you want to choose includes models that have wide, deep toe boxes. These provide room so your bunion will not be irritated (like a girlfriend who got carnations instead of roses). Stretchable shoes can also reduce joint irritation. To make things simple, keep in mind that if you want either relief or prevention, stick to roomy, comfortable shoes.

If you need help showing your feet the love this year, let Sugar Land’s top podiatric practice step in and give a hand. After all, we are the Cupid for feet, ankles, and toes! Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists is here to guide you in appropriate footwear choices for bunion relief and prevention. When you are suffering with this condition, or just want to ensure that you don’t end up with it, make an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas by calling (888) 784-5335 or using our online form.
