What Type of Bunion Treatments are Available in Los Angeles?
Not everyone who has bunions requires treatment. However, your Los Angeles foot specialist may recommend addressing the symptoms of bunions by first changing shoes or using foot orthotics that support the big toe in a ‘normal’ position. Steroid injections or over-the-counter medications may also be used to reduce inflammation and temporarily manage pain. In some cases, surgery at our surgical center may be necessary to relieve pain and restore the toe’s natural position.
