Understanding Bunions

A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe, causing the toe to deviate toward the other toes. Bunions can result in significant pain, stiffness, and difficulty wearing shoes. If left untreated, the condition may worsen, leading to arthritis or other complications.

Causes of Bunions

  • Bunions develop due to an imbalance of forces exerted on the joints and tendons of the foot. Specific causes include:
  • Biomechanics: Faulty foot development and walking patterns may contribute to bunions.
  • Ill-fitting shoes: Tight or narrow shoes can compress the toes, increasing the risk of developing bunions.
  • Genetics: Heredity plays a role in foot mechanics, making some individuals more prone to bunions.
  • Neuromuscular conditions and congenital deformities
  • Occupational stress: Jobs that place excessive stress on the feet, such as ballet dancing, can increase the risk of bunions.

Symptoms of Bunions

Common symptoms of bunions include

  • A firm bump at the base of the big toe
  • Redness, swelling, or pain near the joint
  • Overlapping of the first and second toes, leading to corns or other irritations
  • Restricted or painful motion of the big toe

When to Seek Care

Bunions are progressive and typically worsen over time. If you experience persistent pain, seeking podiatric care to prevent further complications and discomfort is essential. Early intervention increases the likelihood of successful non-surgical treatment.

Treatment Options at Modern Foot & Ankle

Our experienced podiatrists will determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on the severity and progression of your bunion. Treatment options include:

Conservative measures: 

Padding, taping, anti-inflammatory medications, and cortisone injections can help alleviate pain and slow the progression of the deformity. However, these measures do not cure bunions; they only manage the symptoms.

Surgical intervention: 

For severe cases or when conservative treatments are insufficient, our skilled podiatrists may recommend surgery to correct the deformity and alleviate pain.

Insurance Coverage for Bunion Care and Surgery

Many insurance plans cover bunion treatments, including surgery, if they're medically necessary. This means your podiatrist has recommended them to treat your bunion condition or improve your foot function. However, coverage varies. Some plans may not cover bunion treatments, or may only cover part of the cost.

Before getting treatment for your bunion, it's a good idea to check with your insurance provider. Ask about your coverage and any costs you might have to pay.

At Modern Foot & Ankle, we're here to help. We're proud to be in-network with all major insurance plans, which can make the process smoother and more affordable for you. Our team can assist you in understanding your coverage and guide you through the process. We're committed to providing you with personalized care, including bunion treatments designed to enhance your comfort and improve your foot health.
