Bunions

A bunion, medically referred to as hallux abductovalgus, is a common foot deformity that affects the joint at the base of the big toe. This condition typically presents as a bony bump on the side of the foot, often causing pain, discomfort, and changes in the alignment of the toes.

Bunions can develop for various reasons, including genetics, footwear choices, and underlying structural issues of the foot. They can result in pain, inflammation, and difficulty finding comfortable shoes that accommodate the deformity. Over time, the condition may worsen, leading to mobility issues and impacting overall foot health.

Our skilled podiatrists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of bunions. We offer a range of treatment options, including conservative approaches such as orthotics, padding, and footwear modifications to relieve pain and slow the progression of the deformity. In more severe cases, surgical intervention can be warranted and this can be discussed with us prior to seeking surgical opinion.

If you're experiencing discomfort or notice the development of a bunion, we encourage you to reach out to our podiatry team for a consultation. Timely intervention is crucial in managing bunions and preventing further complications. We are dedicated to helping you achieve healthier, pain-free feet and regain your mobility and comfort. Your foot health is our priority, and we are here to guide you toward a more comfortable and active future, free from the limitations of bunions.
