Surgery is not the only method for effectively treating a bunion. There are many non-surgical approaches and over-the-counter products available for the treatment and management of bunions.
Shoe inserts, typically in the form of arch supports, are effective devices for treating and reducing the presence of a bunion. Excessive flattening in the foot can contribute to the formation of a bunion. The arch supports help to better align the foot into a more natural position. In more advanced cases, a special insert that is molded to the shape of your foot can be created.
Taking the necessary steps to prevent the formation of a bunion or to prevent it from increasing in severity will be a major help.
