Bunions are a common foot condition that causes the big toe to bend towards the other toes, resulting in a visible bump outside the foot. This condition can be caused by various factors such as genetics, wearing tight-fitting shoes, or having a foot injury. If left untreated, bunions can cause severe pain, difficulty walking, and even lead to arthritis or other foot deformities.
It's essential to seek medical attention if you notice any symptoms of bunions as early treatment can prevent the condition from worsening and help you avoid more invasive treatment options.
If you've been experiencing discomfort in your feet and suspect you may have bunions, Dr. Michael Stein and Dr. Zeindelin Ahmad will examine your feet, take x-rays if necessary, and explain the root cause of your symptoms. They may advise you to wear proper shoes and use orthotic inserts.
