Bunions are an enlargement of the big toe joint which usually involves a drifting of the big toe toward the second toe. These can become quite painful especially in certain shoes.
Treatment consists of using more comfortable shoes or surgery. Due to many technical advances of equipment and surgeons, the surgery is not as painful as it used to be.
If you have a bunion, it should be evaluated and you should be fully informed of your treatment options.
Heel Pain may be the result of excessive standing or walking. Often the ligaments become inflamed. This is known as plantar fasciitis. A heel spur may also be developing.
Treatment options include strappings, anti-inflammatory medication, custom made orthotics, cortisone injection or possible surgery. Shockwave treatment is also available.
Ingrown toenails develop as a result of a curved toenail pushing into the adjacent skin. The side of the toe becomes red, swollen and inflamed. Infection often develops.
Treatment includes removal of the side of the toenail. This is done under local anesthesia. Antibiotics, soaks and pain medications are also prescribed.
