At Apple Healthcare, we recognize how bunions can significantly impact your daily comfort and mobility. Our podiatrist specializes in bunion treatment in Knoxville, providing expert care to help you return to a pain-free life.

What is a Bunion?

A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore.

Symptoms of Bunions

  • Persistent or intermittent pain
  • Restricted movement of the big toe if arthritis affects the toe
  • A bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe
  • Swelling, redness, or soreness around your big toe joint
  • Corns or calluses — these often develop where the first and second toes overlap

Risk Factors for Bunions

Bunions can be caused by several factors that may increase your risk of developing them:

Treatment Approach

At Apple Healthcare, we offer a range of treatments that cater to both the severity of the bunion and your lifestyle:

  • Protective padding and taping to reduce pressure on the bunion
  • Medications such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen can help control the pain and reduce inflammation
  • Physical therapy to maintain joint mobility and reduce stiffness
  • Orthotics custom designed to stabilize the joint and place the foot in the correct position
