Beat Bunion Blues Campaign to Inform Afflicted Women
Apr 2, 2013 - 11:39:44 AM
"Bunions are very common among women today, and we want to provide the best information available about how to successfully treat the condition," said Matthew G. Garoufalis, DPM, APMA president. "Foot pain is not normal, including bunions, which can be very uncomfortable and, in some cases, even debilitating. There are numerous conservative and surgical treatment options today's podiatrist can provide to patients with bunions. We perform more bunion surgeries than any other medical professional in the US."
While the main cause of a bunion is hereditary, there are preventative measures women can take to properly care for their feet and lessen the impact of a bunion. Whether it's limiting the time wearing high heels or visiting today's podiatrist for a custom prescription orthotic for proper alignment, the Beat Bunion Blues campaign covers it.
