Finding the Right Bunion Correction for Your Foot
Bunions are very painful, inconvenient, and all around no fun at all. Have you ever gone into a store and found the perfect pair of shoes only to discover when you try them on it hits your bunion in such a way that the pain immediately shoots up your foot? The great news is that we can help. At Foot and Ankle Specialist, we have many bunion correctors that can ease your pain naturally without having surgery.
Bunions affect the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint at the base of the big toe, which creates tension in your foot's ligaments. Typically, they protrude out the side of your foot, although there are some that are located at the top of your foot. Rely on us, and we’ll find the right bunion corrector to help relieve any pressure or pain you may be feeling.
Hammer Toe Correction
Have you ever looked at your toes and noticed that one seems to be mysteriously growing in an odd direction? If the joint on one of your toes seems to point upward rather then laying flat, you may have a hammertoe. The hammer toe condition happens when your toe muscles become weak which puts undue pressure on the toe’s tendons and joints forcing your toe to become misshapen and stick up.
Improper footwear, genetics, or a medical condition can all make you a prime candidate for developing this condition. Work with our specialists, and we’ll prescribe exercises for hammer toe correction to strengthen the muscles that control them.
Extending, curling, splaying, and moving your toes individually may help prevent the digital contracture that causes hammertoe. As well as, sensible shoes that are wider, deeper, and have a supportive arch are a must.
