Dear Joce, Sounds like you are having quite notable pain! One questions springs to mind: WHY? Have you changed something in your activities? Have you altered your footwear?

What should I do next for a knee effusion that is still causing pain?

Hi Brandon Great to hear from you! Squash is a great sport - used to play it loads when I worked in the UK - but it certainly upset my knees.

Is surgery the only way to get rid of a bunion? (photo)

Hi Cheryl, Thank you for your question. It’s something I get asked very frequently. Unfortunately, the answer would be a big emphatic yes. 90% of bunions are genetic (do see your mother’s, grandma’s, sisters or female cousins feet). Most people would try things like strapping, toe spacers etc. All t...
