Lehi Bunion Treatment & Surgery
Keep Your Feet Pain-Free!
Painful foot bunions can keep you from living your life the way you want to
Bunions are formed when the bone or tissue of the big toe moves out of place and causes the joint to bend outward. This causes a very painful lump of bone on the side of your foot.
This joint movement usually happens after years of faulty foot development or movement, and can be caused by the way you walk or the type of footwear you use.
If you think you may be suffering from a bunion, our doctors in Lehi can help diagnose the proper treatment.
Lehi Bunion Treatment Options:
Padding & Taping
Your doctor can direct you towards medical-grade pads that can be used to tape your foot to help keep the toe joint in place.
Anti-inflammatory drugs along with injections are sometimes prescribed by your doctor for bunion treatment.
Along with physical therapy, ultrasound therapy can be an option to treat your bunion. Your doctor will advise you on the best course.
Orthotics or shoe inserts can help relieve your bunion pain by taking pressure off of the affected area & joint.
Podiatric surgery may be necessary to treat your bunion. The growth is removed to restore normal alignment of the joint.
