Correct - not really: But you could accomodate by wearing shoes that do not put pressure on it. You don't mention if you have pain and where which is key in helping....

Examination needed: You need to be examined by Podiatrist before options can be given. Please make an appointment for baseline x-Rays and physical exam, so you can be given options that are real. Such as orthotics, exercise program or you just have to change your shoe style, if surgery is not an option.
