Change your Footwear
The biggest cause of bunions is incorrect footwear. make sure you have a pair of shoes that fits well, does not feel too tight, or too loose and has a comfy inner sole. This can make a huge difference to the discomfort caused by bunions and may even stop their growth completely! unfortunately once bunions begin to grow they very rarely recede without surgery.
Bunion pads range in size and type, they do however give invaluable support and comfort to help you move even with bunions. You can get bunion pads designed to make life easier and to slow the progress of bunions! Bunion pads come in small adhesive forms or inner soles for shoes, you should spend some time deciding which kind of bunion pad is best for you. It may be wise to consult a doctor to find the correct type.
Regularly exercising you feet can help to slow bunions. By keeping your bones and joints loose and flexible you can help slow and halt the progress of bunions. A physiotherapist can take you through plenty of bunion exercises to help prevent their growth, or search online for them!
Unfortunately even when you work hard to slow the progress of bunions they can still continue to grow and deform your feet. In nearly all cases the best solution is to go for surgery, this can unfortunately be expensive so you should consult a doctor. If the pain is not that bad yet it may be simpler just to try exercise and new footwear!
