Keep Walking With Relief From Your Bunion Pain

Shoes that constrict the toes (high heels and shoes with pointed toes) may make the condition worse. Without treatment, bunions often become worse over time, therefore a visit to a chiropodist or podiatrist is recommended as early as possible. Non-surgical treatments to decrease bunion pain include, changing shoes (choosing styles with wide toes and a low heel), cushioning bunions with a bunion pad, orthotics to correct abnormal foot mechanics and avoiding activities that increase bunion pain. Once the bones of the joint have been realigned, they may be stabilised (fixed) with pins, screws or sutures. The incision is closed and stitched up. Scheduled appt. With another podiatrist for tomorrow. Called my current Dr. to ask about picking up my x rays that were taken in his office, so I could get a second opinion and also to confirm in writing his instructions from today up until the next 3 weeks. (Walking on my foot without the boot, for an hour a day, increasing it by an additional hr per day, while it still has an unhealed bone in it) He apologized for yesterday's being short with me.

The chevron osteotomy has been evaluated most often through randomized, controlled trials. A study of 209 patients comparing chevron osteotomy to treatment with orthosis and to no treatment found that osteotomy outperformed nonoperative alternatives 39. At 12-month follow-up, the HA and IM angles in the osteotomy group were at normal values, and 80 percent of patients were satisfied with their treatment. Nevertheless, 61.5 percent of these surgical patients still had "moderate" footwear problems, and half had experienced some pain in the previous six months. Over the 12-month follow-up period, the surgery group also had the highest costs for foot care and took the greatest number of sick days. Bunion surgery recovery will normally get within six to eight weeks, in addition to an extra one to three months to reinforce the foot into complete action and remove inflexibility. Tenderness post bunion surgery at all times depends on the person and their patience, nevertheless the frequent gossip that bunion surgery is extremely painful to get well from is purely false. Follow your doctor's instructions as to when you can resume normal activity. In some cases, you may be able to walk immediately following your surgery, according to, but some surgical procedures for bunions require eight or more weeks of recovery time. Step 5
