What are bunions?
A bunion is a visible bony bulging bump on the outside of your big toe joint which can be swollen, red, sore or stiff & sometimes with pain in big toe joint making wearing shoes uncomfortable. Causes of bunions when the big toe progressively leans in towards the others (hallux valgus due to over pronation), flat feet, foot injury, wearing shoes which are too tight & narrow, or sometimes arthritis. Complications due to bunions can be: bursitis, hammertoe & metatarsalgia.
Treatment for bunions
Treatment for bunions involves bunion correction by your physiotherapist to relieve pressure of your big toe joint & halt or slow down the progression of the joint deformity by means of physically assessing & testing painful movements, muscle strength and use of hands on physiotherapy to alleviate bunion pain. Provide strength exercises via our prescription software Salaso, prescribe bunion correctors such as: orthotics, shoes for bunions or bunion splints.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
