five finger australia shoes cheap Do I have to stop wearing heels Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send to Dr. Bunions form when bone grows abnormally at the base of the big toe in the joint between your toe and foot. As they develop, they turn the big toe inward toward the smaller toes, and the enlarged joint can become inflamed, red, and painful. Women tend to have more trouble with bunions than men, thanks in part to our love affair with tough on the tootsies footwear. A recent study said most of us wear shoes a size too small! Make sure any style you wear provides at least half an inch of space between the end of your longest toe and the shoe tip. The shoe should conform to the shape of your foot and be comfortable across the widest part. How you walk could also be part of the problem: Placing too much stress on the big toe or the inside of your foot can cause bunions, along with a host of other problems, like back pain. If your bunions hurt, see a podiatrist: She may suggest special padding to stop the irritation and abrasion and/or anti inflammatory medication or cortisone injections to reduce the swelling and pain. Orthotic shoes or inserts may also help by keeping your feet in the ideal position as you walk. I had 1 done at a time and was on crutches for 6 weeks each time. My podiatrist used pins that would be pulled out at the end of 6 weeks so nothing is still in my foot. My feet still ache at times if it going to rain or if I been on my feet too long, but not too often anymore. (I had the last surgery done almost 6 1/2 years ago when it was becoming painful to walk) April 23, 2011 at 13:37 Report abuse Think before you start typing, if possible. Yes, they cost a fair amount, about eighty dollars, but not an overwhelming amount. I don exactly have a lot of money, and could afford them. And the only time I heard of them wearing out in six months would be if someone ran several miles a day or something. So you would only be paying an average of maybe a little less than eight dollars a month with regular use for more comfort and less foot problems. A cellphone bill would normally be at least triple that. April 23, 2011 at 23:37 Report abuse After 25 years in high heels, my bunion pain was bad enough to get the bunion surgery got both feet done one year apart. I think it was worth it, regardless of the nasty scars on both feet. I didn think the surgery pain was bad at all it was more difficult to be on crutches for 6 weeks and not be able to drive for 3 months after my right foot was operated on. Couldn have gotten through it all without the help of my husband. But there are many different types of surgeries that don have the lengthy recovery time that I had. BTW, surgery was done by an Orthopaedic specialist not podiatrist. Good luck with your decision, Maria. April 22, 2011 at 22:26 I would also recommend an orthopedic surgeon for the procedure. There are a lot of good podiatrists out there, but many of them are quacks and don necessarily have the surgical experience that an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in foot and ankle problems. Don to a sports doctor or an ortho who specializes in backs, just feet. I have a bunion but fortunately it only flares up occasionally. I live with it now and hopefully won have to have surgery. This is no offense to Kelly you may be one of those qualified podiatrists. This is just my opinion. May 4, 2011 at 18:46 Report abuse The twisting rotational deformity of bunions isn just a foot problem, but often the result of the entire chain of bones twisting inward from tight/weak hip muscles. Go to a yoga class that focuses on alignment, hip opening and balance to watch the undoing of that twist. We sit too much, breathe to shallowly which tightens the pelvic floor and then wonder why our hips/knees/feet collapse in same pattern, over and over. Don believe me, try it and decide for yourself. April 23, 2011 at 09:27 My mom has heinous bunions that are starting to cause her a lot of pain. I remember a woman who taught a class in college who wore these orthopedic shoes and told us all about her multiple surgeries and it was all because she wore high heeled shoes and damaged her feet. She told us to be careful what kind of shoes we wore. I never forgot that, but I also didn know bunions were hereditary. I glad I took that lady advice and always chose function over fashion. April 23, 2011 at 20:42 I inherited bunions from my father side of the family. I am a teacher and constantly being on my feet for hours at a time made them very painful. So, after 3 years of teaching, I used my summer break two years in a row to have the surgery done on each foot. I was on crutches for the first few days, but I was able to walk short distances by the end of the first week. I wore a surgical boot for 4 weeks and then tennis shoes, though flip flops were more comfortable if I wasn walking far. I was cleared for mild exercise by the end of 8 weeks. The hardest part for me was when I had my right foot done because I couldn drive for almost 6 weeks. I do have scars, but they aren extremely noticeable. I take pins and scars over painful feet any day!
