How Orthotics Can Help a Bunion
Bunions are typically caused by an imbalance in the structure of the joint at the base of the largest toe. Over time, this imbalance combines with pressures and forces exerted on the feet to gradually shift the toe in toward its neighbors, creating the signature bump.
As a bunion continues to grow, so too can pain, stiffness, lack of toe mobility, and friction-based problems such as corns and calluses.
Custom orthotics – and specifically accommodative orthotics – can provide much-needed support to the vulnerable joint, shifting away excess forces and providing relief from many stresses.
As part of a conservative treatment plan, orthotics may help you reclaim your quality of life from a stubborn bunion without having to go through surgery (and the ensuing recovery).
