Do you have a bunion deformity or other problems that have developed from the bunion? Problems such as:

  1. Pain in the ball of foot beneath the second toe.
  2. Second toe deformities such as hammertoe or crossover toe.
  3. Or even generalized foot pain from altered gait mechanics.

These symptoms are often related to bunions as the primary cause. Treatment options for these problems are well-defined.

Nonoperative management includes:

  1. Wide toe box shoes.
  2. Taping or bracing of the second toe.
  3. Foot strengthening exercises.

All of these do not prevent the progression of the deformity, the development of arthritis, and are well-documented to be associated with increases in symptoms over time. Surgical treatment to correct and stabilize the deformity and treat the secondary problems, however, has shown success.
