What are possible treatments for a bunion?

 

A:

The first step in treating a bunion is relieving the patient of pain and taking the pressure off the bunion. The second step is halting the progressment of the bunion.

The following treatment options may be used in treating a bunion:

  • Padding. Padding can help to relieve pain, especially pain due to footwear. 
  • Corn or callus removal. If corns or calluses, or other foot problems, have devloped due to the bunion, they will need to be treated as well.
  • Footwear changes.
  • Orthotics. Inserts custom-made by a podiatrist or over-the-counter inserts may be necessary. 
  • Exercises. 
  • Night splint.
  • Bunion surgery
