Bunion Bootie, the newest flexible bunion splint, was recently featured in the July/August edition of Current Pedorthics. Current Pedorthics is a bi-monthly publication from the Pedorthic Footcare Association, and it’s the only professional publication dedicated to the field of pedorthics.
The popular, soft and flexible bunion splint is a an alternative solution to surgery to relieve bunion sufferers of their pain. It is extremely comfortable and can be worn in nearly any shoe to eliminate the friction and rubbing of shoes against the bunion area, which is often already inflamed.
We have found that Bunion Bootie is protective, supportive, comfortable and discreet to the patient or client who is using the bunion splint. Bunion Bootie is designed to help properly position the great toe and reduce the pressure on the MTP joint, which helps to soothe the stress of the bunion joint. It also helps to stabilize the foot without adding unnecessary and unwanted bulk or pressure against the sensitive area.
Bunion Bootie is available in five sizes for either the left or the right foot, providing the perfect fit for anyone looking for relief from their bunion pain. Recently, Bunion Bootie introduced its newest bunion splint – one without the toe hole – per the request of some customers who found the toe hole was not suitable for the shape and size of their toe or foot.
When individuals have been diagnosed with a bunion, it can be excruciating, annoying and embarrassing. Bunions often interrupt and prevent their victims from participating in daily activities, including simple tasks such as walking and running. At this point, patients often seek out medical intervention. They are often advised that unless they make changes to their footwear of choice (to shoes with a wider toe box), the bunion will likely only worsen as time progresses. This leads to pain and discomfort which restricts its user from daily activity, which usually then leads most bunion sufferers to surgery. Unfortunately, bunion surgery comes with a long list of possible complications and risks, as does any surgery. So, our question for you is this: Why not try Bunion Bootie before resorting to surgical options?
The writers and editors of Current Pedorthics have seen the positive effect Bunion Bootie has had on those suffering from the foot ailment, and we’d like anyone else who’s dealing with bunion pain to have the gift of that experience.
