IN AN ARTICLE FROM PODIATRY TODAY THEY LIST SOME OF THE COMPLICATIONS OF BUNION SURGERY INCLUDE LOSS OF CORRECTION, OVER-CORRECTION, UNDER-CORRECTION, DELAYED UNION, MALUNION OR NON-UNION OF OSTEOTOMY OR FUSION, JOINT STIFFNESS, NERVE ENTRAPMENT, EXCESSIVE SHORTENING OF THE FIRST METATARSAL LEADING TO LESSOR METATARSAL OVERLOAD, HARDWARE FAILURE/IRRITATION, INFECTION, PROLONGED SWELLING, DEEP VIEN THROMBOSIS, COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROMES, ETC.

MOST OF THESE COMPLICATIONS CAN BE AVOIDED BY JUST AVOIDING THE PROCEDURE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  MANY TIMES THE SURGERY IS PERFORMED FOR COSMETIC REASONS ONLY AND THIS IS USUALLY A MISTAKE.  ONE HARD, FAST RULE IS TO NEVER OPERATE ON A JOINT WHICH IS NOT PAINFUL. THINK ABOUT IT AND HOW IMPORTANT A PAIN FREE FOOT IS.  IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WALKING DUE TO PAIN, YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE IS DIMINISHED IN SPADES.

CONSERVATIVE TREATMENTS FIRST, MEDICATIONS SECOND AND SURGERY ONLY AS A LAST RESORT.

CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE IS WHERE WE USE NON-INVASIVE TECHNIQUES IN ORDER TO RESTORE NORMAL FUNCTION AND REDUCE OR ELIMINATE PAIN.  WE DO THIS WITH THE USE OF CUSTOM ORTHOTICS TO RESTORE THE NORMAL BIOMECHANICS OF THE FOOT, PHYSICAL THERAPY, EXERCISE, AND THE USE OF PROPER, SENSIBLE FOOT WEAR.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PROGRESSIVE, CONSERVATIVE FULLY EQUIPPED FOOT CLINIC IN TORONTO, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST ADVICE, FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.
