Welcome to, The Functional Podiatrist were we specialise in providing effective solutions for all your podiatric needs. If you're struggling with bunions, you're not alone. Bunions can be painful and debilitating, affecting your daily life. But there's hope! Let us guide you through the journey to healthier, pain-free feet.

Understanding Bunions

Bunions are bony bumps that develop at the base of the big toe. They can cause discomfort, pain, and even limit your ability to engage in everyday activities. Bunions may result from a variety of factors, including genetics, footwear choices, and underlying structural issues in the foot.


What we do:

At The Functional Podiatrist, we take a personalised approach to bunion treatment. Our experienced podiatrists will work closely with you to develop a customised treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Here's how we can help you on your path to recovery:

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: Your journey begins with a thorough evaluation of your foot's structure and function. We'll assess the severity of your bunion and any related issues to determine the most suitable treatment options.

  2. Non-Surgical Treatments: In many cases, we can effectively manage bunions without surgery. Our team may recommend conservative approaches such as:

    • Custom orthotics to improve foot alignment

    • Shoe modifications to reduce pressure on the bunion

    • Strength and conditioning strengthen muscles and improve joint function

    • Medications to relieve pain and inflammation

  3. Expert Referrals: If your condition requires specialised surgical intervention, we have an extensive network of trusted surgeons to whom we can refer you. We'll ensure you receive the best possible care, even if it means consulting with a surgical specialist.
