Health Tip: Manage Bunion Pain02/11/13
(HealthDay News) -- A bunion is a bump that forms on the joint
at the base of the big toe. It can be quite painful, especially
when you put on shoes or walk.
The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to
manage bunion pain:
- Apply a non-medicated, over-the-counter bunion pad.
- Make sure your shoes have deep, wide toe boxes.
- Apply an ice pack several times a day to relieve swelling and
- Don't wear shoes with heels higher than 2 inches.
