  • Recognizing a Bunion:
    A bunion is characterized by pain and redness or blisters or bursitis of the toe joint. The toe joint appears large and may stick outfrom the edge of the foot, will be sensitive to shoes and may becomequite painful. The big toe also tends to point to the side — toward your other toes — instead of straight ahead. Your toe may even cross underneath your adjecent toe.
     
    A Bunion Could Also Cause:
    1. Difficulty moving your toe 2. Skin that appears thicker around the bottom of your toe 3. A large lump at the bottom of your toe. 4. Swelling of the toe joint
     
    Bunion RiskFactors:
    1. Arthritis. Arthritis can cause changes in walking patterns, which may cause a bunion. 2. The wrong shoes. Whether too small, very narrow, or with a very pointed toe, the wrong shoe can aggravate bunions. Most women wear shoes that are too small for them.3. Shoes with high heels. They may look great, but shoes with high heels can squeeze your toes, rub on your toe joint, and aggravate a bunion
     
    Bunion Treatment Foot pain can be a bother, making it difficult to even walk around. First of all is to find relief, in the early stages of the formation of a bunion, soaking feet in warm water can provide temporary relief. The best way to alleviate the pain associated with bunions is to wear properly fitting shoes. Based on how severe your bunions are and how much pain they cause you, podiatrists may suggest different shoes, shoes designed with a high, wide toe box (toe area) are recommended for people suffering from forefoot disorders, such as bunions. Shoes with rocker soles will unload pressure to the bunion area. Orthotic are also recommended for this condition to provide extra comfort, support, and protection. Other conservative treatments include using forefoot products designed to accommodate and relieve bunions such as Bort Medical bunion shields, Bort Medical bunion night splints, and Bort Medical bunion bandages. These conservative treatments can limit the progression of the bunion formation, relieve pain and provide a healthy environment for the foot.
    Or you need a surgery to treat your bunions. If the problem persists, consult the podiatrist.

    They really work!

    I have a bunion on my right foot. I realized after wearing them, they were not so bad. Now I wear them every night and I have noticed that my bunion does not hurt as much. They really work!

    Works well

    I’ve been using this for a couple of years. It takes time to build up using all night, but well worth it. I’m a side sleeper and it was bothering me , so I just put a sock over it. If it rubs you the wrong way, put a light sock on UNDER it. The velcro & foam do wear out, but easily replace or glued back on.

    Unbelievable Relief

    Just a few hours every few days is all it takes for me to have complete relief of foot pain. I had no idea that the bunion was secondary to misalignment and this little tool has completely relieved my pain. I work 12 hour shifts (which means 13 hours on concrete), and I am so very thankful.

    My boots fit better now!

    I had purchased this for the bunion on my right foot after talking to a podiatrist who was oh, so eager to do bunion surgery. But I am not ready to give up yoga classes while I recuperate so I tried this splint for a few weeks, not really expecting it to help. Then I tried on favorite boots and they fit much better! I honestly did not expect this to work and it did.

    I sleep much better with this on. I can see a difference in the morning. Too bad they can’t make one for walking.
