I was a ballet dancer for years a young girl. Now, a 36 year old woman living in Manhattan, I have bunions. I am not very keen on surgery. Is there a way to nonsurgically help my bunions?
There are several ways to help your bunions without surgery, but surgery is the only way to correct the problem because a bunion is structural problem. Understanding that, nonoperative treatments include the following: pads and toe spacers, shoe inserts, and bunion splints. Pain associated with bunions can also be treated with pain medication. Choosing shoe gear that doesn’t irritate the area will avoid symptoms in the first place.
