Ignacio, CO Podiatrists Share At-Home Treatment For Your Bunions

Ignacio C O Podiatrists share At Home Treatment For Your BunionsThe bunions on your feet may not be correctable without surgery, but there are home treatments and remedies that could ease the discomfort you may be experiencing. Animas Foot & Ankle Podiatrists near Ignacio, CO care about your health and happiness and are happy to recommend several options to help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by bunions.

 

  • Foot Exercises might help slow the progression of bunions and may prevent the need for surgery. Try stretching and exercising your toes on a daily basis.
    • Use your hands and fingers to try to stretch and pull your toes into alignment with the rest of your toes.
    • Stretch/Flex your toes up against a wall or floor until bent backwards, hold this stretch for ten seconds, release and repeat.
    • Try picking up an article of clothing, or a marble, with your toes; drop it and pick it up again.
  • Use of a bunion pad, arch supports or orthotics provided by your local Ignacio, Colorado Podiatrists could help to realign your toes and redistribute the weight while on your feet & taking pressure off the big toe.
  • Put a moleskin or felt patch around the bunion to prevent rubbing while wearing shoes.
  • In an effort to relieve the pain and stress of bunions, soak your toes and feet in warm water for twenty minutes to sooth your joints and alleviate pain.
  • Alternatively, for particularly sore flare ups, an ice pack applied for twenty minute increments several times a day may also ease the pain caused from bunions.
  • Discuss use of non-prescription pain relievers such as acetaminophens (Tylenol) and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or aspirin with your local Ignacio, CO Podiatrists.
