Bunions are a common foot condition that can cause pain and discomfort. Medications, including anti-inflammatory drugs, can be used to help manage the pain and inflammation associated with bunions. Here’s what the research says about using medication for bunions:
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs are a type of medication that can help to reduce pain and inflammation. A study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research found that NSAIDs were effective for reducing pain and swelling in patients with hallux valgus (the medical term for bunions). However, it’s important to note that long-term use of NSAIDs can have negative side effects, such as gastrointestinal bleeding and kidney damage.
Corticosteroids: Corticosteroids are a type of medication that can help to reduce inflammation. A study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery found that corticosteroid injections were effective for reducing pain and improving function in patients with hallux rigidus, which is a type of arthritis that affects the big toe joint. However, corticosteroids should be used with caution, as they can have negative side effects, such as weakening of the bones and increased risk of infection.
Topical medications: Topical medications, such as creams or gels, can be applied directly to the affected area to help reduce pain and inflammation. A study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery found that a topical medication containing diclofenac (a type of NSAID) was effective for reducing pain and improving function in patients with hallux valgus.
