Dr Ng is helpful with prescriptions and helps lessen the pain in my lower back. He’s a very friendly and cheerful person to talk to, and he’s also very reassuring. I will be back again in two months to get my supplements.

Ask Dr Sean Ng: How To Treat Bunions

Bunions are a common condition that a lot of Singaporeans suffer from. The malaligned bone is not caused by wearing tight shoes, although that can worsen the condition. Bunions run in families, because foot type (shape and structure) is hereditary, and some types are just more prone to bunions than others.

Dr Sean Ng answered readers' questions on how to treat bunions.
