Oakbrook Podiatrist

Swedish technique for bunions in Oakbrook

Are you constantly suffering from a large bump on your biggest toe that often rubs against your shoes, feels warm, and appears to be swollen? Believe it or not, this problem may be more severe than you realize. What often looks to be a simple sore from a pair of shoes that needs to be broken in, or dress shoes giving you trouble, can actually be the cause of an alignment issue occurring deep inside the food. Bunions are a problem which often starts small, but can end with a need for serious care without prompt treatment. Fortunately, you can always find the care you need for foot pain relief with the help of your local Oakbrook podiatrist at the state of the art offices of AFP Podiatry Lombard.

A bunion presents itself as a bump at the base of the big toe where it meets your foot, but is in fact a problem which occurs deep below the surface of your skin with the bones of your feet. The big toe, also known as the Hallux toe, can develop issues with alignment due to poorly fitting footwear, improper support for very high or low arches, and can even simply be the result of a deformity due to genetic inheritance. No matter what the cause, bunions need to be treated as soon as possible in order to stop the problem from causing further harm to your entire foot. In mild cases where footwear such as heels or narrow shoes are to blame, your doctor may simply advise shoes with a wide toe box that will provide adequate room for your toes to move unhindered, with a flexible toe. When support issues are to blame, often times patients can find relief through the simple use of state of the art orthotics. Custom made orthotics are crafted specifically for your feet to help your body become healed and strengthened where it needs it most, providing proper support for a healthy gait and an end to bunions. In severe cases, your Oakbrook podiatrist can work to realign the foot manually with Swedish surgical treatment options that work to restore balance in a gentler manner that works to reduce pain as well as minimize any scarring for beautiful and healthy feet.
