Bunion pain treatment comes in many forms. What type of pain relief you’ll choose depends on how extreme your pain is.
If you’re bunion pain isn’t all that bad, you can try icing the painful bump initially to alleviate the aching and swelling. You might want to buy a new pair of comfortable shoes with a wide toe box and flat heel area. After that, you can also ease the pain by placing a pad over your bunion.
If the pain persists, a visit to McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group may be necessary. There, we can create custom orthotics that will relieve the pressure on the bump, cushion the stress of each footstep, and realign your bones. We may also suggest anti-inflammatory pain relievers to help you. All of these treatments can get rid of your discomfort.
However, if we’ve exhausted conservative treatment methods and the pain is still there, we might suggest bunion surgery.
