No Surgery Bunion Treatment
A bunion is often described as a protrusion or bump on the side of the foot near the toe joint. However, a bunion is much more than that. The visible protrusion reflects actual changes in the bony framework of the foot. This disorder causes the toe to “bow out” instead of pointing straight.
Statistics from the National Institutes for Health indicate almost 4.5 million people deal with painful bunions annually. There are about 100 kinds of bunionectomies that doctors perform, depending on what X-rays show about the structure of a person’s foot.
The surgeries, which are usually outpatient, can involve breaking the metatarsal bone, removing the bump and realigning the soft tissue and joint. Sometimes a pin is inserted to hold the bone in place.
The Levingston Method™ offers a non-surgical alternative to painful bunion surgery and the long recovery time. Dr. Levingston is the only practitioner in the United States that offers this revolutionary non-surgical bunion treatment.
Dr. Levingston begins by performing a full comprehensive exam to determine the best course of action to correct and straighten the big toe and shrink the bunion utilizing his 12 point bunion treatment system:
