For effective treatments for bunions in Toronto, come to the Davisville Foot Clinic. Bunions occur when the base of the big toe pushes outward against the metatarsal bone of your foot, resulting in a hard, painful lump that protrudes from the joint. While painful in itself, bunions also affect your walk and weight distribution, and can be an easy place for calluses to form. We can provide you with splints and corrective orthopedic shoes that will gently move the joint to its original position.
Bunions are painful, but you can prevent them from forming by:
Wearing shoes that fit you properly
Walking barefoot at home to relieve pressure
Applying a cold compress to any swollen joints
Using a preventative splint to prevent your toe from becoming misaligned
To deal with your painful bunions, turn to the experienced team at the Davisville Foot Clinic. Call us today.
