CHICAGO, IL, December 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- For many women, towering high heels are a way of life. From office pumps to a night out on the town, you can find women wearing skyscraper heels to just about anything. You may marvel at how some women are able to effortlessly walk around in them; however, over time heels can take their toll. If you are guilty of slipping your feet into some tight shoes time and time again, you may be dealing with bunions. A bunion is an abnormal bump that develops on the joint at the base of your big toe.
Every time you slip into some snug shoes you are slowly forcing the joint of your big toe in the wrong direction. Over time a bunion forms. If you've noticed a bulging lump near the base of your big toe, experienced swelling or soreness or had difficulty moving your big toe, you may be dealing with a bunion. To find out your treatment options, turn to Dr. Neal Frankel, podiatrist in Chicago.
"While one cause is wearing tight shoes, bunions can also develop in those who are dealing with certain medical conditions like arthritis. Many times it's just inherited. Whatever the reason, no one should have to live with bunions," says Chicago, IL podiatrist, Dr. Frankel. "While we always try more conservative treatments at first, like over-the-counter medications and special shoe inserts, sometimes these options aren't aggressive enough. In these cases, I'm pleased to offer my tougher cases relief from their bunion pain."
The Swiss Technique for correcting bunions in Chicago, IL is actually a very quick and painless procedure. "The surgery only takes about 25-40 minutes," says Chicago, IL podiatrist, Dr. Frankel. "The procedure realigns the bones by pushing them back into the proper position. This prevents further cartilage damage and it helps the foot function normally again."
One of the biggest advantages of the Swiss Technique for correcting bunions in Chicago, IL is that incisions are nearly invisible and there is minimal scarring. "The Swiss Technique has numerous advantages, including only minor swelling and little pain," says Dr. Frankel, podiatrist in Chicago.
