Bunions are generally the result of trauma or some type of imbalance with the foot. They can sometimes be painful and have been known to cause swelling. Surgery is needed to correct this foot problem.
While surgery is required to fix a bunion, there are other ways you can accommodate for it and prevent it from becoming worse. For example, a custom-made orthotic device can be utilized to keep a bunion from worsening over time.
To find out more about custom-made orthotics and bunion surgery, contact Wayne Foot and Ankle Center by calling 973.595.8900. An experienced Wayne podiatrist from our office will be able to examine your foot and explain the most appropriate options for you.
