Bony deformity: A bunion is a bony bump on the joint at the base of your big toe. It happens when your big toe points toward your second toe. Things you can do to improve the pain are wear wide, low-heeled shoes, or special shoes designed to have extra space around the big toe. Do stretching exercises – this helps the toe and foot joints move better. Wear a bunion pad – this is a small cushion that keeps the big toe from rubbing against your shoe. You can also ice it after exercising, or take Ibuprofen or advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) as needed. ...Read more

Treating bunions: There is no conservative treatment that will correct a bunion--so called bunion correction splints may ease some symptoms but will not "train" the toe to go straight. Wider shoes, a toe spacer, and tube foam are the most common ways to treat the pain and discomfort.
