40 years experience Podiatry
See below: Conservative care consists of orthotics and possible cortisone injection for pain and inflammation. Surgery would only be done if pain becomes chronic or there is difficulty wearing shoes. During the surgery the extra bone is removed and at times the tendons around the bone have to be anchored to the remaining bone.
