Bothersome Bunions

One of the most common ailments that people complain of are bunions. A #bunion is a bump that forms on the base of the joint of the big toe. This bump is irritated by shoes rubbing against the affected area. This inflammation can become painful and cause the toe to stiffen and swell. If you fear that you are affected by bunions, please contact one of our convenient locations for an appointment with Dr. Michaels, 301-797-8554 for #hagerstown or 301-418-6014 for#frederick.
