Surgery for bunions can be avoided, because custom orthotic footwear can prevent the need for this invasive measure. Sometimes referred to as hammertoe, bunions are common, potentially-hereditary, foot deformities, which are formed when rotation of the first metatarsal bone causes the big toe to move towards the second toe. Wearing ill-fitting shoes can lead to pressure on the bunion, which causes severely-sharp pains in the foot.
Through the use of custom orthotics, prevention can help you avoid surgical procedures. A custom insole or shoe insert can correct the problems that may be causing the bunion to form. When caught in early stages, custom orthotic footwear can help you walk comfortably, while stopping progression of bunion formation.
If you notice a bump on the side of your foot or a callus on the side of your big toe, it’s time to check into corrective, custom orthotics. While tight-fitting shoes aren’t totally to blame for this affliction, they contribute to a bunion’s development. You can take the easiest course of preventive action, which is wearing custom orthotic footwear. This eliminates the need for expensive surgeries and you don’t need to worry about walking properly or comfortably.
