What Should You Do With Bunions Or Bumps On Your Feet?

Bunions or bumps on the side of the foot are very common.  Most people develop bumps on their feet due to genetics, and the propensity to develop bunions often runs in families.  Wearing poor shoes can also cause bunions or tailor's bunions to develop.  Sometimes, bumps on the feet are actually bone spurs that are getting larger over time due to worsening arthritis.

If you have painful bumps on your feet, it is not normal.  When the bumps are limiting your activity and ability to wear shoes, it is time to address them medically.  There are several different ways to address them, but often times, surgical removal can provide more pain relief and get you back to living a more active lifestyle.  Call our Colorado Springs and Monument podiatrists today at 719-488-4664, so we can help you.  Dr. Hinderland and Cameron both have extensive surgical training and experience and are ready to help you with all your foot and ankle needs!
