Orthotic Inserts: A Natural Solution for Bunions

Blog by Vancouver Orthotics, Hycroft Medical Building (114-3195 Granville St @ 16th Ave) | July 23rd, 2016

So you have a bunion, and in between bursts of pain and discomfort you think, “I think I could get away with being a plaid-wearing lumberjack…” Unfortunately, that is the wrong “Bunyan.” A bunion is the enlargement of the bone and joint of the big toe, and it is often caused by the external irritation from footwear (high heeled or narrow shoes tend to cause a greater stress) or from particular activities. Genetics may also be a factor. Here at Vancouver Orthotics we offer natural bunion relief and treatment, without the use of surgery. The use of custom orthotic inserts can successfully treat and even prevent uncomfortable and painful bunions. Give us a call today to set up an appointment!
