Stop Pain from Bunionettes

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

If you’ve experienced pain from bunions, chances are you’ve also dealt with its pinky-toed twin, bunionettes. No, we’re not talking about a banging new pop group, bunionettes, just like bunions, can cause serious pain and discomfort, and if not treated can seem crippling. A bunionette, historically called a Tailor’s Bunion, is a bump that develops on the outside of the foot, near the base of the little toe. Just like bunions, they can be caused by biomechanical abnormalities, wearing shoes that are too small or narrow, or even genetics. Many may quick to jump to surgery as treatment, but bunionettes (just like bunions) can be treated and prevented with the use of custom fitting orthotic inserts! Give us a call today to set up an appointment to see how custom orthotic inserts could help you leave your bunionette woes behind.
