Is it possible for a bunion to go away on its own?
No. A bunion will not just go away on its own. In fact, a bunion will only get progressively worse as time goes on if not treated. If you have a bunion, you should see a podiatrist for an evaluation. Your podiatrist will determine the best treatment options for your particular case. The treatment will depend on the severity of the bunion. The treatments available range from conservative options, like padding, orthotic devices, splints, and/or exercises, to more invasive treatment options, like bunion surgery. The conservative treatment options can help to relieve pain and stop bunion progress, but they will not make the deformity or "bump" go away. The only way to get rid of that bony bump is with a surgical procedure. For more information on bunions, you can watch the video above or you can contact us online or at (888) 713-0906.
