For mild and early cases, you may be advised to take the following steps to prevent further deterioration of your condition. These include:
- Proper footwear with wide toe box and avoiding high heel shoes
- Use of orthotics such as bunion pads, bunion splints and toe spacers to temporary correct the alignment and reduce pain
- Over-the-counter pain medications that can reduce the pain and swelling around the affected big toe
For severe cases, if you have a lot of pain on walking despite the measures described above, bunion surgery is the only effective way to treat the condition.
