Getting the highest level of surgical care in Colorado Springs for painful, unattractive bunions
Here’s what you should know about getting board-certified Colorado Springs bunion surgery at Intermountain Foot & Ankle:
Bunions are often a painful foot condition where joint tissue or bones protrude from the base of the great or little toes. This results from a stress to the joint over a long period of time. Women tend to suffer from the condition more than men, likely because of the wearing of pointy, tight, and high-heal shoes. Arthritis of the big toe joint can be another cause of bunions.
Depending on the level of pain and deformity, bunions can be treated in a variety of ways to include:
- change of footwear to something more comfortable and reduces stress on the affected area
- pads can be applied to the bunion to help alleviate pressure
- medications, such as ibuprofen, to relieve pain
There are benefits and risks to surgical correction of bunions which you should discuss with a board-certified podiatrist, a physician with highly-specialized training to deal with medical conditions affecting the foot and ankle.
You can read more about bunions at American Podiatric Medical Association website.
