Orthotics for Bunions

Common symptoms include:

  • A bulging bump on the outside of your greater toe.
  • Outward deviation of big toe (hallux valgus).
  • Tenderness and swelling around the big toe.
  • Thickening of the skin at the base of your greater toe.
  • Difficulty flexing and extending your big toe.

If these conditions sound familiar, book your appointment today and let us help you get back on your feet pain free!

Custom Orthotics Designed for Bunion/Hallux Valgus:

  • Full length medial (inside) post - this will direct impact forces away from the bunion and alleviate the greater toe region.
  • 1st Ray Extension - allows the orthotics to act as a lever to propel the foot forward, which in turn will prevent extension of big toe during toe off to allow for healing.
  • Customized arch support - aids in dissipating the pressure throughout the foot and offload the base of the greater toe.
  • Shock absorbent forefoot cushioning - prevents inflammation at the bunion and absorbs shock when forefoot loading.
  • Neutral casting - to align your feet and lower limbs in order to place them in the most optimal position for gait.
    • This will position your feet from walking in an abducted (duck) stance position - to a direct (straight) orientation.
  • Deep heel cup - will lock the heel in place, allow your foot to maintain neutral position.
  • Perforated top-cover - materials that wicks away sweat and bacteria while allowing for effective transfer of air and perspiration, resulting in a cool, dry environment.
