What are methods i can do at home to get rid of small bunion?

What are methods i can do at home to get rid of small bunion?

None really: Unfortunately, there are no home remedies for bunions. Toe straightening devices simply don't work, in my experience. Wear roomy shoes and pad them to avoid irritation. When they become too painful, consider surgical correction. Make sure your surgeon realigns the bones. Simply shaving the bump usually allows reoccurrence over time. ...Read more

More comfortable/wider shoes often decrease the pain. If it is a significant problem see a Dr. for an X-ray. ...Read more

What do they do for a vey small bunion that is in soo much pain? I can barely walk but it's soo small

The pain may: Be secondary to a bursitis, if the pain is that severe an injection may be warranted. It is plausible, you may have gout if there is unbearable pain with a small bunion. The podiatrist should also check for hallux limitis which could cause pain as bone grinds on bone. ...Read more

What to do if i think i might have a small tailor bunion on my pinky toe. What can I do to help it?

Surgery, inserts.: Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a tailor's bunion. If you elect to have surgery, there are several ways your surgeon could go about it. Depending on the angle of your bones (you'll need an x-ray), there are many different procedures to choose from to correct your foot. If you would rather, cortisone injections to the joint or orthotics can improve symptoms. ...Read more

A lot depends...: On the severity of the bunion, the procedure performed and the doctor preforming it! almost all of my patients walk the same day as the surgery. I am also shocked that many say they have little to no pain. Most spend 5 to 6 weeks in a surgical shoe, then back to regular shoes as tolerated. Having sais all this, there are some bunion procedures where you do have to remain non-weightbearing... ...Read more
