Bunions can be painful foot deformities and can occur in people young and old. Bunions occur usually because of a biomechanical imbalance between the bones, muscles, and joints in the feet. The worse the deformity gets, the more opportunity for related deformities and symptoms to occur.
Bunions can be managed medically or surgically and the doctors here at Silverman Podiatry will ensure you receive the proper care based on your condition and needs.
Certain shoes can also contribute to worsening of a bunion deformity so make sure you have your shoes properly fit for you by a trained shoe professional.
