Bunion Treatment at Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine of Houston, TX
Clinical bunion treatment is sometimes necessary if at-home therapies don’t provide adequate pain relief. Individuals from Houston, Texas, who are experiencing persistent bunion pain can turn to Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine for a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan.
At Advanced Orthopaedics, our team of foot and ankle specialists go beyond simply rattling off a list of treatment options. We take the time to carefully review a patient’s symptoms, imaging scans, treatment history and lifestyle to determine what therapies are most likely to produce the best results. This patient-centric approach is one of the reasons that Advanced Orthopaedics is one of the top orthopedic providers in the Greater Houston area.
Depending on a person’s specific needs, our bunion treatment recommendations may include:
- Prescription or over-the-counter medication
- Orthopedic shoes
- Custom orthotic inserts or bunion cushions
- Hot and cold compresses
- Warm foot baths
- Analgesic creams
- Callus shaving
- Activity modifications
If these conservative bunion treatment methods don’t produce the desired results, surgery might also become an option. Using today’s most effective minimally invasive and muscle-sparing techniques, Advanced Orthopaedics’ foot and ankle surgeons can realign the bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves in a patient’s foot to restore proper positioning. This can be extremely helpful for people who are experiencing significant pain and activity limitations as a result of their bunion.
