Hereditary Foot Problems That Can Be Treated By a New York Podiatrist

Thanks to genetics you may often hear, “oh you look just like your mother did at that age” or “he has his daddy’s eyes for sure,” which are usually nice compliments to hear, but funny how you never hear “yep, you got your grandma’s bunions” or “lookout for toenail fungus it’s rampant in our family.” Aside from the fact that people don’t generally discuss foot problems, especially at family gatherings, many are also unaware that 95% of foot problems are hereditary. A New York podiatrist from Adler Footcare discusses a few below.

Bunions

A bunion is a bone deformity that creates a bump, usually on the big toe joint. Bunions are caused by an enlargement of the joint that causes the toe to move out of place. Bunions can be painful, especially when friction is caused by the bunion rubbing against footwear. Since bunions are genetic they are not able to heal themselves. Getting rid of a bunion completely usually involves surgery. A New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare can perform minimally invasive bunion surgery, which is done by making a very small incision in the foot and causes significantly less trauma than traditional bunion surgery.
