Non-Surgical Bunion Care Tips
Chances are, if you suffer from bunions, you are looking for the best ways to find relief and stop the progression of your deformity. At Bunion Bootie, we are dedicated to educating people about bunions, toe/foot deformities, natural treatment options and how to avoid bunion surgery. We recommend always seeking a doctor that specializes in foot care to assist with your bunion journey as well. Today, we’re discussing non-surgical bunion treatment tips that can help with the management of your bunion and the associated symptoms.
Use Bunion Splints
Bunion splints such as our Bunion Bootie can actually prevent the first and second toe from pushing against one another. While wearing a bunion splint, it can actually reduce the pressure placed on the toe, reducing overall discomfort and pain often experienced. Bunion splints can be worn during the day along with at night. Interested in ordering a Bunion Bootie for you or a loved one? We have various sizes depending upon your need.
Ice Your Bunion
The Mayo Clinic suggests applying ice to your bunions to experience relief from inflammation, swelling and soreness that can occur throughout the day. During the day, being on our feet and putting pressure on them can actually make bunion discomfort worse. Applying ice to the area can reduce swelling and the discomfort associated with bunions.
Try Toe Separators
Toe separators can be a wonderful non-surgical bunion treatment option that prevents your first and second toe from touching, reducing the unnecessary pressure. While toe separators will not reverse or heal your bunion, they can provide immediate discomfort and pain relief. We recommend toe separators for the early stages of bunion formation, prior to the big toe becoming fixed in it’s position.
Wear Wider Shoes
According to WebMD and many studies around the world, wearing shoes that fit properly and do not put unnecessary pressure on the toes along with avoiding high heels and pointed shoes can greatly reduce bunion discomfort and pain while also reducing the risk of their formation at all. It is always recommended to purchase shoes with a wider shoe box that do not have a heel. Need help finding the right boots for bunions? Considering flip-flops for your beach vacation?

Improve Arch Support
Did you know arch support can directly impact your bunions and bunion formation? Supporting the arch of your foot can reduce the pressure and force applied to the front of your foot/bunion. Typically custom-made orthotics are best, however, in recent years, more store-bought options can be highly beneficial.
