Diagnosis and Treatment for Bunions:

Diagnosis and Treatment for Bunions

PowerPoint Presentation:

Even though bunions are obvious from the pain and unusual shape of the big toe, further diagnosis is wise.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A doctor will usually take X-rays to determine the extent of the deformity.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Blood tests may be advised to see if a type of arthritis may be causing the pain. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

Based on this evaluation, your doctor can determine whether you need orthopaedic shoes, custom made inserts, medication, surgery, or other treatment.

PowerPoint Presentation:

To treat bunions, your doctor may recommend a prescription or over-the-counter pain reliever, as well as a medication to relieve swelling and inflammation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A heating pad or warm foot bath may also help relieve the immediate pain and discomfort.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If your toe joint is painful and inflamed, applying an ice pack to the affected area several times a day can relieve pain and inflammation.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If the bunion isn't persistently painful and you catch it early, changing to well-made, well-fitting shoes may be all the treatment needed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Surgery may be recommended for some bunions, but only when symptoms are severe enough to warrant such intervention.
