HOW TO RELIEVE THE PAIN OF BUNIONS AT HOME

Bunions are a common foot problem where the join connecting the big toe to the foot is deformed. This often happens gradually and can be the result of genetics, wearing ill-fitting shoes or high heels, arthritis, and more, and can be very painful. 

 

If you are suffering from bunions and want to find bunion relief at home, Precision Podiatry can help. Here are 5 things you can do at home to reduce the pain of bunions:

 

Keep your Weight in Check
 

When you are carrying extra weight, it can cause stress to your feet and ankles and aggravate bunions. If you are suffering from bunion pain, losing weight can reduce the pain.

 

Buy Wider Shoes
 

Since bunions can the foot to gut out farther in the width that normal, buying wider shoes can help alleviate pain. Make sure the shoe fits well, providing plenty of room for toes to move freely. 

 

Use Moleskin
 

If you are noticing rubbing and discomfort for your bunion, applying moleskin over the bunion daily can help alleviate foot pain. Be sure to change it out often.

 

Bunion Splints
 

Your podiatrist can evaluate your condition and might recommend bunion splints that can help straighten the toe and help with the pain, typically worn at night. However, when removed the pain generally returns, so these are not a permanent solution. 

 

Massage and Hydrotherapy
 

Foot massages and hydrotherapy may both ease bunion pain. You may also try ice packs after a long day on your feet.
