Not normal : Bunions can be pain-free and need no treatment while pain associated with bunions can be from arthritis of the first MTP joint or ligament pain. There are numerous nonsurgical treatments including bunion splints, toe spacers, rehab exercises, footwear changes, anti-inflammatories and injections.
