Understanding Hallux Valgus

Hallux valgus, commonly known as a bunion, is a common foot condition characterized by the deviation of the big toe towards the other toes. It often leads to pain, discomfort, and difficulty wearing certain footwear. At The Foot Practice, we understand the impact this condition can have on your daily life. Our specialized team of podiatrists is dedicated to providing effective treatment options to alleviate your symptoms and improve your overall foot health.

Treatment Options

1. Non-Surgical Treatment

For mild to moderate hallux valgus cases, non-surgical approaches can often provide effective relief. Our podiatrists will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition, considering factors such as pain levels, foot structure, and activity level. Based on this assessment, personalized treatment plans may include:

  • Orthotics: Custom-made shoe inserts can help realign the foot, reducing pressure and discomfort.
  • Padding and Taping: Strategically placed pads and tapes can cushion the affected area, alleviating pain.
  • Physical Therapy: Targeted exercises and stretches can aid in strengthening foot muscles and improving joint flexibility.
  • Footwear Modifications: Our experts can recommend and provide guidance on appropriate footwear choices to accommodate your specific needs.

2. Minimally Invasive Procedures

In cases where non-surgical treatments do not provide satisfactory results, our skilled podiatrists may recommend minimally invasive procedures. These advanced techniques offer several benefits, including faster recovery times and minimal scarring. Common minimally invasive treatments for hallux valgus include:

  • Bunionectomy: This procedure involves the removal of the bony prominence, allowing the toe to realign properly.
  • Osteotomy: The surgical repositioning of bones can help correct deformities and restore better foot function.

3. Surgical Intervention

Severe cases of hallux valgus may require surgical intervention to achieve optimal results. Our experienced podiatrists specialize in a range of surgical techniques tailored to your specific condition. We employ the latest advancements in foot surgery to address complex deformities and deliver long-lasting relief.
