How Do I Treat My Bunion?

The best way to treat your bunion is to seek early treatment.

A bunion is a common foot deformity that creates a large bump on the side of the big toe. 

Foot bunions that are painful, become noticabley larger and/or affect your daily life should be evaluated by a podiatrist to determine the severity of the deformity.

Depeding upon the pain and severity of your bunion your podiatirst will talk with you about the different treatment options and together, determine the best treatment option for you. 

Treatment Options:

  • Avoid tight, narrow fitting shoes that put place pressure on the big toe joint.
  • Choose a wider shoe.
  • Insoles and custom foot orthotics made by a qualified podiatrist.
  • Accomodative padding to relieve pressure spots.

 

If your bunion becomes inflammed and painful it is more likely to become larger and become symptomatic in the future
