Let’s go through the bunion treatment checklist. Have you tried…
- Shoes with plenty of toe room that are made of materials which accommodate your bony bump?
- Orthotics that redirect pressure away from your bunion and correct issues that may be causing extra irritation?
- Stretches for your big toe that strengthen ligaments, promote flexibility, and encourage proper alignment?
- Bunion splints that hold your toe in the correct position?
- Padding to add a layer of protection between your bunion and your shoe?
- Icing the area and taking anti-inflammatory medication to ease pain and swelling?
