Bunion xray

Bunions come in all shapes and sizes.  I have seen very large ones that are not painful and very small ones that are painful.  It is amazing how it can really be all over the spectrum and size and pain do not always coordinate.  The most important first step regardless of pain is to have them evaluated. 

The evaluation should be done by a bunion expert.  I have spent years and time with 1000s of patients evaluating bunions.  I can now say some do very well with conservative care and some require surgery.  I always recommend x-rays and looking at the rest of the foot to see if it is affected.  Sometimes as the bunion gets bigger the smaller toes begin to curl and hammer.  It is paramount to appreciate the rest of the foot and its function as well.      

The treatment for bunions is not all the same.  The treatment depends on individual foot structures, bone quality and lifestyle or activity levels.  If you are suffering from bunion pain, I can help.  I have seen how painful and debilitating it can be.  Make an appointment online or give us a call at 425-391-8666 today.
