Tailor's Bunion bunionette
Conservative treatment includes using anti-inflammatory oral medications or an injection of medication and local anesthetic to reduce this swelling. The podiatrist may request x-rays but in most
cases you can diagnose the condition by a visual examination. The podiatrist may remove any corns or calluses that develop due to the tailor's bunion. It is common to have a corn on the outer aspect
of the tailor's bunion due to friction pressure.
Orthotics such as the Dr Foot Pro Insoles will help to correct any underlying biomechanical problem to
and prevent the condition from progressing. Footwear should be changed to broad fitting shoes with a minimum heel. The 1st or 5th toes should not be placed under undue stress in footwear. Their are
tailor's bunion alignment splints you can use to correct the condition Although this product was initially designed to be used after tailor's bunion surgery, however, gently stretching the soft
tissues around the small toe joint helps prevent the need for surgery.
