These are slipped between the big toe and the second toe and are very helpful in pushing the big toe back to the normal alignment and some of the pressure will be taken out of the joint. You could also try ice to relieve the bunions. How about doing a cold compress to help relieve pain of the swollen bunions?

Many people will know what a bunion is because they may have problems with it. For those who don’t know about bunions, simply put, a bunion is a bony bump on the inside of the foot that forms at the joint where the big toe attaches to the foot.

A fracture is a broken bone. Any fractured bone requires several conditions to heal. First of all, the bone fragments must be in proper position to heal. An X-ray will determine if a fracture is displaced (the fragments are left in an abnormal position) or non-displaced. Even a non-displaced fracture needs stability to allow the pieces of bone to adhere together and fuse. If a fracture doesn’t heal, it can cause long term pain similar to arthritis. Injured bone, like any tissue, also needs proper circulation to heal. Ensuring a bone fracture to heal is no different than ensuring a bone surgery to heal.

When I went to see my podiatrist for possible treatments, he examined my bunions. The doctor immediately ordered me to stop wearing my high-heeled shoes (Oh my Manolos!) and just stick to flat shoes with lots of toe room for the meantime. I couldn’t stop cringing when I realized that flats don’t really flatter my calves but I had to do what the doctor ordered. Both surgical treatments for bunions sounded really scary even after the doctor assured me that it wasn’t. I’d rather stick to non-invasive treatment and avoid wearing high heels all the time.
