According to Cleveland Clinic, up to one in three Americans have bunions. The foot condition is more common in older adults and women.
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It can happen when the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place, perhaps due to ill-fitting shoes, preexisting foot conditions, or foot injuries.
Unfortunately, bunions don’t just go away if you leave them alone. Treatment is necessary, but the kind of treatment you’ll need varies based on the severity of the condition.
According to Mayo Clinic, the following are methods of treatment for bunions:
- Wear comfortable shoes that give your toes plenty of space
- Wear bunion pads or cushions
- Take acetaminophen, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, or cortisone injections
- Wear shoe inserts
- Ice the area
And, of course, surgery is an option if the condition is so severe that none of the above treatments don’t work.
