Wear proper shoes: Bunions are not correctable without surgery but the symptoms associated with bunions can be controlled and relieved. Wider supportive shoes are essential. Often wearing a medical grade orthotic insert will control the foot motion to relieve stress on the bunion. Bunion toe spacers can also provide some relief along with anti-inflammatory pain medications both oral and topical.

Bad enough: A midfoot sprain can be difficult to recover from. You need to have it evaluated to make sure the common ligament (Lisfranc) isn't damaged. See a foot and ankle specialist

No: When the great toe 'pops' or 'cracks', it often is from a shift of joint fluid within the joint. There may also be arthritis in the joint. It is best to get an x-ray and have it evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist.
