Couldn't find what you looking for?


My daughter 13 has a bunion. What can be done BEFORE surgery? She is active in sports, does not complain about foot except on occasion. I DO NOT want her to have surgery if at all possible!


Well, this is something you should consult her podiatrist about. Depending on her individual situation and severity of the pain bunion may be causing, there are different measures that can be taken.

To reduce tension on the inner part of the joint of a bunion, stretching exercises may be given by a doc.

A bunion splint to wear during the night can provide some relief or custom insoles for repositioning and support.
