How can I treat (or possibly cure) a bunion?

See below.: Only way to get rid of a bunion is with surgery since this is a structural deformity. Other non-surgical treatments are wider shoes, orthotics, padding. In some instances an occasional injection may help reduce pain and inflammation, although this should be only done sparingly.
