Bunion Treatment Plano TX
If you have ever experienced bunions, you know how painful they can be. After all, you can’t expect the unusual enlargement of a joint at the bottom of the big toe to feel like a walk in the park. Inflammation is the cause of the condition and typically pressure and pain from footwear that fits poorly is a result of the condition. While people often attribute the footwear itself as the cause of the pain and the need for bunion splints, many experts believe that one’s genes are actually the cause of the condition. Bunion treatment is one of our specialties.
A dislocation of two primary bones in the foot causes the problem. However, some people who experience this dislocation will not experience bunions. That is because they do not suffer from the overgrowing of the bones and the bloating of the joint.
The first metatarsal bone which is connected to the foot near the ankle and up to the big toe, is one of the bones most affected. The bone moves towards the metatarsals that are attached to the other toes.
Meanwhile, the other bone related to this condition, which creates a need for bunion splints, is the big toe, which is dislocated in the direction of the other four toes. The displacement can happen either over or under the second toe. Bone inside the forefront begins to stick out. In some instances, skin atop this projection can result in a callus.
