Trust us for effective Bunion treatment and relief.
Bunions are a common foot problem that is accompanied by symptoms including pain and a bony growth that turns into a large lump.
With years of experience, we know how to diagnose and provide you with the best bunion treatment Sydney has to offer. We provide short term relief and long-term management. This includes foot padding, bunion splints and custom orthotics, bringing you the most up-to-date solutions to effectively treat your bunions.
Wearing constraint-inducing footwear such as shoes with a slanted foot bed and a narrow toe box over long periods can cause misalignment of your foot, leading to foot bunions.
Injuries to the foot can also be a factor in developing a bunion. Having flat feet or overpronating feet does biomechanically make you vulnerable to foot bunions.
There is a higher likelihood of developing bunions if you have a family history of them. It is possible to inherit a short metatarsal or have a convex and rounded distal joint.
If your bunion is starting to cause more discomfort, then we strongly suggest getting it assessed. The earlier bunions are treated the lower the likelihood that you will need surgery.
Regular checks and x-rays are recommended to prevent joint damage. Treatment options include changes in foot wear, orthotics, regular exercise, padding and active modifications such as standing or walking for long periods of time.
We provide effective non-surgical bunion treatment to help you regain mobility, so you can enjoy your favourite activities pain-free. To treat your bunion pain, our podiatrists offer both short-term pain relief and long-term solutions to improve the function and strength of your toes over time.
Is Bunion Surgery Necessary?
Bunion surgery is required when conservative treatments don’t work and the bunion interferes with daily activities due to pain or lack of mobility. Our team of fully trained, licensed podiatrists will help determine and provide the best treatment option available based on the severity of the condition, underlying cause, and any past procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can children develop bunions?
Yes. Bunion deformities in children are known as juvenile bunions. You should have your child’s feet and gait checked if there is a family history of bunions, if they are in pain or if you see their big toe out of alignment. The earlier bunions are treated the lower the likelihood that surgery is required.
How can orthotics help treat bunions?
Orthotics work by slowing down the progression of a bunion deformity and gait alignment. One of the main causes of bunions is constraint-inducing footwear such as shoes with a slanted foot bed and a narrow toe box, which can cause subluxation of the joint, leading to foot bunions. This is usually by far the most popular and best conservative treatment option for bunions.
