Health Tip: Battling Bunion Pain

A bunion develops when the joint at the base of the big toe becomes swollen and most likely painful.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to ease bunion pain:

  • Make sure shoes fit properly and comfortably, and mold to the shape of your feet.
  • Opt for shoes with a soft sole, wide toe box and wide instep.
  • Avoid heels of more than 2 1/4 inches, those that are too tight, and shoes with pointy, narrow toes.
  • To accommodate a bunion, wear shoes that are a bit big, or have your shoes professionally stretched.
  • Place a protective cushioned pad over the bunion.
