While surgical bunion treatments are available, those seeking relief from the pain and discomfort of bunions can utilise a number of non-surgical alternatives, including insoles, changes in footwear, padding and more. This can also depend on the footwear you typically wear and the bunion treatment you are comfortable with.
Treatment Of Bunions (In Women’s Fashion Shoes)
Bunion’s caused by women’s fashion shoes or made worse by the pressure caused resulting from this kind of footwear, can be relieved and supported using FootActive’s Catwalk orthotic insoles. They can help to prevent the further formation of bunions by restoring normal foot function and by controlling excess pronation, will also help to reduce the pressure when walking.
The metatarsal support will help reduce pressure and friction, placed on the big toe joint, in turn providing relief from bunion pain. If you are still suffering from bunion pain despite the support of Bunion treatment insoles, consider wearing flatter, looser-fitting shoes.
Treatment Of Bunions (Normal, Flat Shoes)
Bunions are not just limited to women wearing high heels. They can also develop in men (wearing normal flat footwear) and in those with hereditary or inflammatory diseases. To ease bunions and help prevent further development, wearing FootActive Comfort orthotics can greatly assist with support and reduce the overall pressure of pronation as an effective bunion treatment.
Furthermore, make sure that your shoes have a roomy toe box when you’re going to be on your feet a lot. If you have any pressure from your shoe on the bunion, or if your bunion is red and inflamed on the outside, then you should have a pocket stretched into your shoe to accommodate.
