A bunion is more than just a blister or a sign of working too hard, but is in fact an alignment problem which occurs with the Hallux or the first toe of the foot. This happens with the first metatarsal bone begins to slip out of alignment with the corresponding phalanges of the toe. A wider forefoot is then formed, stretching the webbing between the tones and gradually shifting the joints of your big toe out of alignment. The greater this gap becomes, the more your big toe will begin to become pushed towards the smaller toes of the foot. Only professional bunions treatment in Lombard can fix this problem and stop your pain from ever returning for good.

Treatment for bunions varies depending on the severity of the problem and its root cause. In many cases, a patient will blame their tight or ill-fitting shoes as being the source of their troubles, when in fact this is simply not the case. Improper footwear only works to aggravate a previously existing problem. In fact, wearing wider shoes will often allow bunions to become far worse. Bunions most often occur due to a genetic problem within the foot structure such as flat feet. The right shoe can make a world of difference, and anti-inflammatory medications are also available for severe inflammation. In many cases, orthotic devices custom-made to your feet work to provide proper support that actively works to strengthen weakened regions, realigning the foot gradually in time. In severe cases, surgical options are available to remove enlarged bone regions and realign the joints.
