On September 10, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM,
The Corner Table Houston is hosting the inaugural “Big Easy Benefit for Stuff the Sleigh”
fundraiser. For those who are unfamiliar with Stuff the Sleigh, the organization
is dedicated to helping children affected by cancer and hematological
conditions experience the joy and spirit of Christmas all year long. This
particular fundraiser is a great opportunity to make a difference for
children in difficult situations, while also dressing up and having a
good time with fellow community members.
The prospect of dressing up and wearing high-heeled shoes, though, may
be daunting for women who have
bunions, but we might—depending on the severity of the condition—be
able to help with the use of nonsurgical bunion treatment. We want you
to feel confident and comfortable when attending events like the Big Easy
Benefit for Stuff the Sleigh, so let’s take a look at some of the
possible components we may incorporate in your treatment plan.
Now, a big part of conservative bunion care entails avoiding high-heeled
footwear, or at least limiting how much time you spend in them. If you
only break out your best pumps or stilettos for rare occasions, like charity
benefit events, this might not be that bad. When doing so, though, you
should definitely consider models that have a bit more room in the front.
To help with wearing dressy shoes, and as a general part of your bunion
treatment, we may recommend the use of pads and taping to keep your toes
in a more normal position. Doing so can take away stress from the bunion
and provide pain relief.
In addition to padding and taping, you may find that certain medications,
including ibuprofen, naproxen, and acetaminophen will help to manage the
pain. Be sure to contact our office for appropriate dosage recommendations.
Even better, come to our Houston, TX podiatrist office for a cortisone
Ice is another method to relieve inflammation and soreness after a long
day on your feet. Also, we might prescribe orthotic devices or recommend
over-the-counter arch supports to reduce symptoms and prevent the bunion
from worsening. There are even stretches you can do to help minimize discomfort.
