woman_walking_in_heels_at_nightWhen you think of foot problems you probably don’t picture a beautiful woman with a bump on her big toe – also known as a bunion. But even Real Housewives aren’t exempt from foot pain caused by bunions. As is the case with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Claudia Jordan. She’s also very good at making excuses as to why to not get treatment for her bunion, similar to the types of excuses the average person might make. Find out what they are in the article below.

Claudia Jordan Says It Isn’t The Finances Holding Her Back From Foot Surgery

Now, Jordan is revealing that she has often thought about having the surgery that would help her remove some of her bumps and bunions. And since Claudia had yet to go through with the surgery, many people speculated that the housewife may not have the funds to pay for such a big surgery; it would take her out of work for at least a month.

According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now revealing that it isn’t a money problem that is holding her back from getting her feet fixed. Instead, it appears to be a matter of pain, as Claudia is scared.

“People have asked me if it was a financial restriction that has prevented me from going ahead with the surgery, and that is not the case at all. It’s more a case of when would I ever have a month where I can commit to healing, not wearing a heel, and being in a surgical boot?” Claudia explains of her situation on her feet.

“Plus I cannot lie, I am afraid of the pain and I’m also scared of the surgery, because you have to remove a part of your joint in your toe! That is terrifying to say the least. I am getting pretty close to convincing myself that it’s for the best and will keep you all updated if and when I decide to go under the knife,” Jordan adds.

Just like Claudia Jordan, many people who are faced with the possibility of bunion surgery make excuses why it’s not a good time for them to get treated. The top excuses are:

  • I’m afraid of the pain
  • The recovery time is too long
  • I can still tolerate the foot pain

But ignoring the problem is not a good idea because it will only get worse. The good news is that there are treatments available to help the foot pain caused by bunions and other common foot problems. The treatments are minimally invasive outpatient procedures, which means they are done by making a small incision the size of a pinprick. There is little pain involved and a quick recovery time.

If you have foot pain caused by bunions or other problems, and you can relate to the excuses above, the New York podiatrists at Adler Footcare can evaluate your feet and make the best treatment recommendations for you.

In the case of a bunion, you will be evaluated to see if you’re a candidate for HyProCure® treatment first, then bunion surgery would be considered. Learn more about these treatments in the free download below.
